Should JR Smith stick around next season?
Smith has a $2.5 million player option for next season he can either exercise and remain with the Knicks or decline, which would make him a free agent. The erratic-shooting 2-guard is a valuable sixth man, but he was brutal in the final three games against Miami.
Smith, who, ironically, has a tattoo behind his left ear that reads “swish,” shot just 3-for-15 in the Knicks’ 106-94 Game 5 loss last night, which followed his 5-for-18 brickfest in Game 3 and his 3-for-15 nightmare in Game 4.
In the final three games of the season, Smith threw up 48 shots. And hit 11.
