JR Smith wants a team to show him the money.
He could have exercised a one year $2.44 million deal to stay with the Knicks, but he decided he needs to secure his finances long term.
For good reason, since there have been reports he is headed down the Antoine Walker broke highway. I don’t think he cares what team he goes to, it is just matter of who is going to pay him the most.
