Default J.R. Expected To Re-Sign With Nuggets Within 7-10 Days!

NBA rumors are a way of life, but sometimes common sense must rule. That's why I had to shake my head Monday when I saw a report out of Cleveland saying the Nuggets and Cavaliers are talking about a deal involving young shooting guard J.R. Smith.

The 22-year-old Smith is a restricted free agent, but there is no indication that he and the Nuggets are going to part ways anytime soon. In fact, I've been told by a very reliable source that J.R. is not going anywhere and he could re-sign with Denver within the next 7 to 10 days.

Smith is one of those young players the Nuggets can ill afford to let go. He has had some bumpy times in Denver -- not to mention his home state of New Jersey, where he was the driver in a fatal accident last summer -- but he showed signs of maturity last season and even gained back much of the trust that George Karl had lost in him during the 2007 playoffs. Plus, he can shoot as well as anyone in the league. He made 40 percent of his three-point attempts last season and hit at least six 3s in a game seven times. It might take the rest of his teammates half the season to make that many 3s.

The Nuggets already have extended a one-year, $3.04 qualifying offer to Smith, but it looks like he's going to get some long-term security. The question becomes: How much are the Nuggets willing to commit? Smith told the Rocky Mountain News last month that he hadn't heard from any other teams. It's now up to the Nuggets to determine his market value -- a difficult task when there are no other bidders. Will they give him a multiyear deal starting at the mid-level exception of $5.585 million or can they convince Smith to take a little less? We should know very soon.

Wow, I hope this is true. I'm excited, but at the same time I'm a little curious as well. What I want to know is what was the talk amongst the Nuggs/Cavs that they had a couple of days ago?. Should they re-sign him, are they really planning on keeping him or trading him to the Cavs?.

*Edit*
Aww, looks like Mile High already beat me to the story.

I never even began to speculate the nuggets wouldn't sign him. It was a done deal as far as I was concerned, just needed to put ink to paper. Management might make some stupid moves, or lack thereof, but they know JR has a really bright future with the nuggets.

not signing jr yet is baffling- imo it should feel like a gift that you would jump all over to get him at the money that it would take right now

why else would it still not be done if the nugs were trying to keep him?- i (& it seems most here) are very nervous about this situation- i pray for the day i see a "jr signs a 5 year deal to stay a denver nugget"

I'm predicting he'll get a 4 year deal for ~25 mil with the 4th year as a player option.

I'm confident that he'll remain a Nugget next year, one way or the other.
Oh and also because this organization is run by a bunch of retards, but hey, who am I to tell those "retards" how to run their organization. After all, what they've been able to accomplish as of now has been nothing short of remarkable(sarcasm). Smiley won't work lol.

Here's to hoping that your prediction comes true.

With every passing day that nothing new happens with JR, I die a little inside.

Something tells me management is waiting for the olympics to finish before anything happens. Just a hunch.
