J.R. Smith has essentially made himself untouchable and unlovable as a basketball player.
The New York Knicks are trying hard to rid themselves of Smith, but he’s unlikely to have any suitors. According to HoopsWorld, one NBA executive said you would have to be an idiot to trade for Smith.
“Of course [they want to trade him], but only an idiot would take him. Can Steve Mills trade him to himself?”
“I hear Shanghai has a spot,” one rival GM told Ken Berger of CBSSports.com about a potential Smith trade.
“Is it April Fool’s Day?” one rival executive asked SNY.tv.
