Outside of LeBron, no one enjoyed himself after a championship more than JR Smith. Following the championship, Cavs GM David Griffin said that the team wants JR back, even though he opted out of his $5.4 million player option. But as the summer has dragged on, the sharpshooter hasn’t inked a deal with Cleveland yet.
Smith sat down for an interview with ESPN and said that it isn’t a foregone conclusion that he will be back with the Cavaliers next season and that he is not looking forward to deciding which team he will end up with.
“I’ve thought about that situation (leaving Cleveland), and I’ve thought about it the other way, too, going back and winning again,” Smith said. “Both are juggled in the air and I’m kind of nervous about that choice when it gets presented to me.”
