Knicks re-sign JR Smith
This was agreed to about a week ago. Just became official today since the moratorium was lifted.
That sucks, but THJ has a guaranteed contract...not feeling too bad for him. Now he just has to work hard
Wasn't he re-signed over a week ago? 4 years 44 mil I believe. This is semi-old news.
4 years, 24.5 million. Enormous diff. Kind of a steal for NY despite JR's obvious flaws.
I think this is better for THJ because it keeps the pressure off him.
Turns out there is this cyclist in Idaho that survived an apparent wolf chase.
I believe the speculated plan is to slowly develop THJ this season, and if he proves to be a productive player then the Knicks will try to move JR Smith for other pieces.
This is a Michigan blog.
The 6'6" guard is used to the big stage after three years at Michigan, and should relish the opportunity to play at MSG.
Unlike his dad, Hardaway isn't an elite ball-handler, but he still has what it takes to be an effective role player in the NBA. He has a prototypical build for a shooting guard, and excels as a spot-up shooter.
On the defensive end, Hardaway is competitive, and he should do a decent job on the perimeter. He's by no means a great defender, but his frame and athleticism will make him tough to score on.
Knicks have kicked off their summer league and are currently playing New Orleans. THJ is bringing the ball up the court more than you'd think. Taken a couple questionable shots, but that's something you take when it comes to THJ because one game or another he'll catch fire.
I obviously missed the tentative agreement from last week. In other more recent news, did you guys hear that Dwight Howard is going to the Rockets and Chris Paul is staying in LA? I know I'm the first to break that news, amirite???
Still a big development for THJ, even if it is old news. Definitely going to be a bench guy for the next few years due to this. Not sure if that's a good or a bad thing, but I think he would have been under a tremendous amount of pressure without Smith. He probably would have been starting on a playoff quality team in NYC. Needless to say, a lot of attention if things don't go well
