    OMG! I like JR Smith the basketball player. I can't stand him as a person. His girlfriend seems like a real winner too.

    He'd be perfect in LA or NY. Indy fans would hate him more than they hated Stephen Jackson.

    You know more about J.R Smith than me. Being in China, I have never watched a game of his here, but I only heard of the brawl by his sister and girlfriend.

    As a player, Pacers need him. As a person, probably not. Maybe he has a pure heart as Artest/SJAX, but we never know what would happen to him the next minute.

    BTW, do u mind his sister or girl friend sitting in the Fieldhouse?
    They will threw a cup into the court like John Green/Charlie Haddad if JR Smith got fouled hard.
    That would only happen once before they'd be banned from BLF.

    If only we could have him as a rental for this year

    I know from a charcture standpoint he is a risk but after watching our bench have no real go to player

    I would take a swing. I mean were talking about a SG with playoff experience, one who can light it up when hot

    At this point, if we can't swing a better trade, and JR was willing to come here AND stay in check, then I would do it
    If we have to use the 'IF' clause more than once on a player, it's likely to stand for It'll Fail. That's a bummer too, because I love Smith's game. But he just seems like the seed of J.R. Rider. They can't get out of their own way.

    For what its worth bleacherreport has us as Smiths 6th likely destination. I would honestly love to get him. When he gets in his groove he can drop 30 on any given night. Obviously hes not that consistent but i guarantee his presence could win us some extra ball games this year.
    The Brawl set our franchise back years but it was a hell of a lot fun to watch!

    It's worth nothing. I don't necessarily disagree with the part that's your opinion though.

    If my choices were to wait for George Hill's return, sign J R Smith or pour boiling water over my privates, I think that I would wait for George, followed by the water option as a distant second, with signing Smith getting no votes whatsoever.

    Of course, if trading a pick for MarShon Brooks were an option as Peck as hinted, that option might have to scooch into first or second place in my preference list.

    The problem is, you could also guarantee his presence would cost us some games this year as well. Denver would never deny the fact that he is talented. It is his inability to reel himself in that is the problem. I remember Clark Kellogg asking a question about Artest, that would fit JR Smith as well. "Why can't he just focus on that pure, beautiful basketball ability." The world may never know.

    Would be fun to get someone who could actually pass and get our other guys better shots. Of our 12 guys who get PT we have 10 born scorers along with Lou who thinks he's one for whatever reason and Jeff who's great in his role of only taking quality shots.

    I'd have an easier time believing the "J.R. Smith is a cancer" talk if he didn't just come off of a season in which has was a major cog in a team with one of the best on-court chemistry in recent history.

    He's not a beloved milk drinker, no, but I don't believe he's a team killer, either. He's very talented, and still just 26. In my opinion, he's good enough and young enough to be a team's long-term solution at SG, rather than just a scoring punch off of the bench.

    It costs to get Nash. Smith would cost us nothing but a little cap space which we have plenty of.

    Sources say Smith has been hit by a number of NBA friends and former teammates to join them including New York’s Carmelo Anthony, and Clippers teammates Chauncey Billups and Kenyon Martin who played with Smith in Denver. Sources close to the process say Smith is looking for a situation in which he can play a major role and be well compensated for his efforts. Winning and the playoffs are a factor, but Smith’s camp is extremely sensitive to the perception of Smith being a role player or worse yet being a cast as a minimum dollar athlete. HoopsWorld

    Isn't the step above role player a star?

    I think it goes role player, starter, star.

    Maybe it's just me, but I'd definitely take a one year flyer on him and go from there. We need actual depth and this guy just needs a big role in order to sognifcatnly boost our offense. He could be capable of dropping 35 on any given night, and just like with Jamal Crawford, we still need that until Paul George blossoms.

    ESPNSteinLine Besides Clips and Knicks battling for J.R. Smith's signature, sources say Indiana and Minnesota have also registered interest.

    I'm thinking that JR Smith and his Agent is using Indy to ramp up the asking price knowing that the Pacers can pay more than anyone else.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Sort of, but his other suitors really can't pay more. The Pacers are his most realistic choice of scoring a decent size contract for the rest of the year.

    Knicks can offer at most the taxpayer MLE of $2.5m. Clips and Lakers can offer the vet minimum at most. In comparison, the Pacers can offer anything up to $14m thanks to our cap space. So it's pretty obvious why JR might be interested in the Pacers.

    FWIW, I don't think we'd be interested in him. It's too bad, but his off-court track record makes him too risky.

    Well... We're not a middle of the road team anymore. We're close to contention, and if he wants to win AND get paid while looking for a larger contract over the summer, he can come here and play... It's not one or the other, it's both winning and money here.
