J.R. Smith is on vacation in Amsterdam, Netherlands with his new wife and is enjoying life as an NBA Champion. One thing that many fans are still waiting on is his NBA contract. According to multiple sources, Smith and the Cavs expect an agreement soon and are just figuring out what the final figures will be.

If you’re worried about Smith leaving, however, it doesn’t look like you need to worry. Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders is reporting that Smith is not looking at any other team besides the Cavs.
My understanding is JR is only looking at the Cavs. They just have not reached a deal yet. https://t.co/gUKRn9vLYY

If this is true, and there’s no reason to believe it isn’t, expect Smith and the Cavs to come to an agreement in the next couple of weeks. Also, there’s no real rush to get a deal done if both sides know that J.R. wants to be a Cavalier for the next couple of seasons.

The Cavs re-signed LeBron James last week, and Smith would very likely be the final move the Cavs make this offseason in their pursuit of a roster ready for it’s title defense, something the city hasn’t had to do in 50+ years.
