Cavs announce JR Smith will no longer be around the team

Smith has requested a trade twice, but he remains with the franchise because he's refused to accept a buyout.

The JR Smith era in Cleveland has come to an end as the wine and gold have announced that swish will no longer be with the team.

"I've been on teams where we've won 18 games and the development stage was to try to win at any cost", Smith said, via The Athletic.

"I don't think that's fair to the people I see every single day walking around the arena", he said. I don't think that's fair to the trainers or equipment guys.

The team released the following statement moments ago: "The Cleveland Cavaliers announced today that JR Smith will no longer be with the team as the organization works with JR and his representation regarding his future". I think the goal is to develop and lose to get lottery picks.

No fear of paralysis for F3 driver after surgery
Floersch has a spinal fracture, according to a medical report released by her team, the Netherlands-based Van Amersfoort Racing. Her injury comes after previous year Brit youngster Billy Monger lost both his legs in a crash at Donnington.

The Cavaliers fired coach Tyronn Lue last month following a 0-6 start, and the team has been riddled with injuries, the most prominent to All-Star forward Kevin Love, who remains out indefinitely following foot surgery.

Smith's contract is grandfathered in to a quirk in the collective bargaining agreement allowing for his full salary in the 2019-20 season to be counted in possible trades.

The Cavs will host LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night, marking James' first game against his former team as a member of the Lakers.

While Smith's contract is fairly tradeable, given it is partially guaranteed for next season, it's not a lock that a contender would welcome the opportunity to acquire the shot-happy guard. That factor could incentivize the Cavs to make sure they finish with one of the worst records in the league. He has played in the playoffs in 11 different seasons so far. James told The Athletic that trading Kyrie Irving before the 2017 season was the end of the Cavaliers' chances of adding to their first title.
