With JR Smith in some heat recently for his on court antics trade rumors have been swirling. Here are few trades that could benefit the Knicks and other teams.
KNICKS GET: STEVE BLAKE AND JODIE MEEKS
LAKERS GET: JR SMITH
The Laker's need help scoring now if they want to make a run at the playoffs and JR Smith could boost their offense. The Knicks in return would get two expiring contracts in Blake and Meeks to free up cap space as well as PG help and two solid 3 point shooters.
KNICKS GET: DION WAITERS AND CJ MILES
CAVS GET: JR SMITH
Dion Waiters has had problems in Cleveland and is looking for a fresh start and the young 2 guard could boost the Knicks this year. CJ Miles offers another three point threat, he made 10 in one game this year. The Cavs are looking to improve the look of their roster as much as possible to potentially land Lebron in free agency and JR Smith could help.
KNICKS GET: STEVEN ADAMS AND THABO SEFOLOSHA
THUNDER GET: JR SMITH AND PABLO PRIGIONI
The Knicks get the 12th pick in last years draft, Steven Adams, who is a similar player as Tyson Chandler and who could be a true backup center for them. Also Sefolosha is a lockdown defender who could help one of the worst defensive teams in the league. The Thunder get a scorer they desperately need with Westbrook out and when he comes back JR could provide a third scoring option either starting or in the 6th man role like Martin and Harden did in the past years.
