J.R. Smith and the Cavaliers remain at an impasse: The Cavaliers reportedly are offering about $10 million to Smith, he would prefer $15 million. Years may also be at issue. But LeBron James wants the deal to get done (and he and Smith have the same agent), so eventually it will.
Smith is hosting his 10th annual golf charity outing, which is taking place in New Jersey. Smith talked about it in the Uninterrupted video above — then he had a message for media who might attend and ask about his contract status.
“I know you guys are going to ask me about my contract situation. You’ve got my agent’s number so you all can call him. Rich Paul. You all know what it is. Klutch. You dig?”
Not sure what comes out of asking Smith about it at this point anyway. The deal will get done when it gets done, possibly close to camp. He’s not going anywhere, and the Cavs want him back.
