View Full Version : Possible Cavs-Nuggets deal

The Cavs are talking to Denver about restricted free agent J.R. Smith, and they should go after him hard. The 6-6 Smith is athletic, shot 40 percent on 3-pointers and 46 percent overall while averaging 12.3 points in only 19 minutes a game. With Denver signing wing man Dahntay Jones and being on a binge to cut payroll (they gave Marcus Camby to the Clippers to cut $10 million), it seems Smith should be available.

It would be a very smart move on the Cavs part if they pull this off. I don't think Danny Ferry is this smart. lol

That would take pressure off Lebron....Smith can score in spurts better than most players in the NBA....and with the Cavs offense as iffy as it is at times....having another guy who can go off will be a great thing....

i dont think they will give smith since he is cheap

JR plays good offense but his defensive game isnt good

The Cavs should trade for Iverson.

Again, another move that will help the Cavaliers, ofcourse, but wouldn't put them over the top..

The Cavs need to make a move of a Vince Carter/Allen Iverson/Tracy McGrady calibur to move up in the East.

Like I said before, the Raptors/76ers/Magic all improved, and the Cavaliers I just don't see competing with them like they have in the past.

I see them competing for the 6-8 seeds, more than likely the 7-8 seeds in my opinion.

Still wont beat the Celtics.

Smith is a very good player an is still very young. He will be helpful for Lebron but i doubt the Nuggets trade em. D.Jones is alright but smith is much better.
