A day after losing to the Golden State Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals, Cleveland Cavaliers guard JR Smith is looking for reinforcements.

The enigmatic 31-year-old liked an Instagram picture that featured Carmelo Anthony, his friend and former teammate, edited into a Cavs jersey alongside LeBron James.                

Anthony, who's under contract with the New York Knicks through 2018-19, is one of three NBA players with no-trade clauses.

Smith was electric in Game 5 at Oracle Arena on Monday night, netting 25 points and going 7-of-8 from beyond the arc.
