    Default JR Likely to Re-sign for 4 Years?

    Not sure if this was common knowledge or posted already, but it's being reported that J.R. Smith is likely to re-sign with the Knicks for 4 years at a little more than 5 million a year rather than test the free agent market and possibly cash-in for more with another team.

    Here's the story I saw:

    Apparently, part of the agreement is likely to be for the Knicks to also sign J.R.'s brother Chris again. This part of the move is either shady or savvy, depending on what you think about J.R. I suppose.

    My take on this deal, if this story is true, is that it avoids a smaller scale version of the Lin mess from last year and gives us at least a little stability going into next season. There is no way we'd get as good a player as the 'good' version of J.R. Smith for a little over 5 million a year. The continued variable is going to be how much of the 'good' J.R. Smith is going to show up once he's got an extended deal.

    One less thing for the Knicks to worry about. On to the next player signing.

    The haters gonna hate this move after his playoff performance but it's the right move if JR is willing to sign with the Knicks rather than test the FA waters.

    The Knicks could have gambled that he wouldn't have drawn any interest because of his playoff performance and because there a lot of good FA wings on the market this year that JR would have to pick up his player option but I think he had a good enough year to warrant giving him a new deal.

    Default JR...our main man

    JR is a great athelete and a talented shooter as but as a doctor I wonder if he has all his marbles or at 27 is just immature. Babe Ruth could drink and hit home runs...so could Mantle and Martin play hung over. Obviously JR 's escape to the brew was psychic pain for game 4 against the Celtics and all of it's reprecussions. For JR to become a great player he must make players around him better and must get his shots in the flow rather than his behind the back dribbles and step back jumpers exclusively. I agree with the previous post that this would be if happens for 5 million a good signing.

    Then we need to re sign WOODSON and get full time psychiatric care for JR...JR sane is more dangerous as a player than INSANE.

    Smart move by the Knicks. 6th man of the year as low as 5M a year...That's value for the buck right there...

    U guys are all Morons who think this is a good idea..........A player dictates who we sign and who we dont sign ????

    Remember last year how Knicks got JR for cheap.....I do not remember a single team offering him a penny more or any contract,,,,,,,,JR was not offered more money last year....

    Look How good Kenyon Martin was for us...NO TEAM would offer him even a 10 day contract....

    NYers me being a lifer always seem to think we pulled the wool over someones eyes can got a great deal....


    Sign me and sign my brother,,,,,,,,,,,,,Just what we need is a locker room of 2 smiths when we could not even handler JR....

    The dude elbowed terry, Went put partying, Played instagram with Rihana and most of all Sucked in the Playoffs again....

    WHATS THE BARGAIN ???????????????????????????????

    DUMB DUMB DUMB


    wait till he resigns and he gets to demand playing time for his brother....or when JR's minutes are reduced should make for a a warm fuzzy locker room...

    WINNERS ARE WINNERS.......JR IS NOT A WINNER.

    Please don't do it!

    Grunwald, consider these guys instead: Korver, Allen, Martin (long shot I know), Mayo, Foye and Redick.
    All of them would be better fits for this team, not only they can score, but they also have their minds in place.

    Agreed they all would be great additions at what price. BTW I saw Zack Randolf ...the multi million dollar man score 2 points yesterday as the SPURS made the Grizzlies look their J.V. JR had a great year...and stunk up the playoffs along with CHANDLER, Felton's FABULOUS game 6, NOVAK who burnt his ass on the bench....talking to CAMBY ,Q RICH, BALLONE, ....and J KIDD whose season ended before the PLAYOFFS BEGAN. I will take 27 year old JR who has learned alott about life this post season.

    +1

    The only stability this add, is in stabilizing the NYK's future as a 1st or 2nd round playoff exit. Dollars are precious, especially when you have a playoff team that's locked into big salaries already.

    And that ain't even what's the worst about the deal: it just adds more cement to the NYK's fatal flaws of culture and chemistry. Okay, you wanna build a team around Melo, you need to do so in a very specific way if you want to be a real contender. This is another reason he ain't no Lebron, no Wade, no KD, etc.

    Melo is a bit of a complicated superstar, can we all agree? The debacles of him playing alongside STAT (especially a healthy STAT) and Lin, being coached under D'antoni, his days in Denver, etc......Can we call a spade a ****in' spade?

    Melo is still a superstar, and I do think you can win with Melo as your #1. I think he is a punk and don't like him personally, but I admit he can be a true #1, and even on a winner. When his game is on, and he is in the right situation, outside of Lebron there is no player in the NBA I'd rather have. But not when Woodson is your coach, not when you bend over for Melo's stylistic wishes, not when James Dolan gives him the keys to the franchise, and not when you surround him by guys like JR.

    JR playing even for free would be detrimental to NYK chances of building a true contender.

    It makes me wanna throw hooks to people's bodies when I think of NYK being bounded out of playoffs in 2nd after struggling to get past a Boston geriatric hospital team.

    Also, this is actually why Melo deal all way back when was weak. It wasn't that we gave up so much (though Dolan got fleeced, if you compare to what BK gave up for Deron Williams). It was because it didn't put us on a clear path to a chip.

    Melo > STAT. But STAT became an awkward role player, even when health, ever since Melo has stepped on same court as him. I don't blame Melo for this, bc it is what it is. It's Dolan's dumbassery #1, and the reality of who Melo and STAT are #2.

    Now we're locked into paying max for a shell of STAT, and have locked in players around maxed out Melo who play to his flaws.

    The NYK need a legit brilliant coach to reign in Melo, and maximize him the a team with him. I don't believe Melo will be a part of a true winner in the NBA unless he has a Jackson-like coach on board. Melo will never make a coach look like a genius, and better than he really is (mark of a true upper tier superstar, IMO).

    NYK need max flexibility right now, and to do things to help Melo succeed and thrive, while correcting flaws. Re-signing JR does not do this. It is true that Melo doesn't have a ton of quality help on the NYK -- but this is partly his fault, and either way, it needs to be corrected.....not by moves like this. And i fear it won't happen as long as Woodson-Dolan-Melo dynamic is in play.

    JR, another Woodson boy.

    Last year JR against the Heat was awful in the playoffs...then got into a sparring match with Fans through tweets.

    so this year our 6th man award winner :

    Elbows Terry for no reason and get tossed. Knicks then need to play without him and Lose.
    Then JR comes back and plays terrible.....We find out he was out the night before partying...
    Lesson is if you elbow a player and get suspended make sure your first game back that you are out the night before till 1 am plus. The JR plays and continues to shoot incredibly poor and does not drive to the hoop.
    Lesson learned all season if JR drives to the hoop he is much more efficient but he decides to not take that route.
    Then in the 4th quarter of an elimination game with 2 seconds left on the shot clock he loses his man and the Pacers get 2 easy lay-up.....

    at 27 you are done learning if you are an NBA player......Yes at 23 you can say potential but at 27 no.....

    Woodson will be JY's B_itch and soon JR;s brother will join that..........

    I believe there is no team in the NBA who will offer JR 4 year 20 million dollar contract,,,,,,,Jamal Crawford makes 5 million is JR a bargain at 5 million.....Nate wont get 5 million I would rather have him...

    OH YEAH....Our special bargain is we get JR's brother that no team wants to sign as a Knick and we get JR to continue to shoot 16 shots a game......

    WTF do you not see
