As the Cleveland Cavaliers search for answers to break out of their current malaise, JR Smith would be willing to take on a different role for the team.
Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue said after the Spurs game he was "going to make a change" in their lineup, per McMenamin.
Lue didn't offer specifics of what the changes might be, but the three-time defending Eastern Conference champions are spiraling with 10 losses in their last 13 games.
Before the season started, when Dwyane Wade was in the starting lineup, Smith didn't seem happy to be coming off the bench.
"We talked about it," Smith told Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com. "It wasn't the most positive conversation, but we talked about it and we'll get through it together."
Lue put Smith back in the starting lineup after three games. The 32-year-old is averaging a career-low 7.4 points per game this season. His 33.8 three-point shooting percentage is his worst since the 2009-10 season when he was with the Denver Nuggets.
