The New York Knicks & J.R. Smith Work Out A Deal
Ya boy J.R. Smith trolled everybody with his “it was fun while it lasted” tweet, but turns out we can now confirm that Mr. Smith will continue on in a Knicks uniform for another year. Well, four years actually if you read the terms of the new deal.
J.R. has accepted 4-year, $24.7 million contract this morning, according to his agent Leon Rose. That averages out to about $6 Million a year.
Smith was looking for a $10 Million a year deal, but it seems that that was a bit over his market value.
