Default Nuggets prepared to keep J.R. Smith!

Quote:
Indications are the Nuggets will make a determined effort this summer to re-sign guard J.R. Smith, who will be a restricted free agent. The Nuggets have sent out feelers that they likely would match any offer sheet tendered to Smith.

It may not be that tough of a negotiation. Smith, who came close to accepting a Denver contract offer in October, wants to stay.

Yes!! sign him to a new deal already! I dont care about the cost!




"DO IT NOW!!"

Also, Denver had the chance to give him a contract extension for very cheap when he wanted it in the off season, but chose not to...now JR will probably test his value in the market once he's a (restricted)free agent. Sucks for Denver, they could've had him for extra cheap and now they'll have to empty their pockets and wait for what other teams are willing to give him to be able to compete with that offer.

Before you make a statement about George get your facts straight... George has an opinion about the team but that is is.. HE has NO say as far as who stays and who gets money... Mark and Bret have the say!

Damn it! Looks like the Spurs might take a look at him...if they decide to go after him, I can definetly see him leaving Denver.

The one who makes the most sense for the Spurs is the one with the least sense. That would be J.R. Smith, the flawed diamond of this summer's free-agent class. He has been everything the Spurs are not, and he also has everything the Spurs need. So he's worth a look. And if the Spurs go in that direction on July 1, and if they interview Smith, then what follows will hinge on this: Can Gregg Popovich see something he likes in someone he shouldn't? Next season might hinge on it, too. The Spurs likely won't get enough from the draft to help them immediately, even if they find a way to move up. The other free agents are equally uninspiring. Role players are available, not much more. But if he's open to the Spurs, and Popovich is open to sitting down with him, a franchise-changing decision would come down to one thing. Popovich's gut.

PLEASE DON'T GO AFTER HIM POP!!!!!!

I hope that Melo, JR and Nene get to leave Denver, this place is an NBA career graveyard.

Spurs: JR Smith is not a good one on one defender, but he has the potential if we will work on it. I think Pop can do it. You got to admire the San Antonio administration, they're always making good moves even little ones. I think its safe to say, San Antonio has the best eye for talent.

Hopefully this is a sign for George Karl. If he notices that Pop thinks he deserves to be on a championship caliber team, then maybe Karl will recognize and start giving him the respect and minutes he deserves.

Hopefully, anyway.
