Cleveland guard JR Smith told reporters Thursday, November 1, he'd like to be traded from a Cavs team that appears determined not to use him, an admission that could see him fined by the National Basketball Association.

Smith seemed to suggest that Lue playing the Cavs veterans may have been his death knell.

Smith said that the team asked if he'd like to be moved and he declined. "They know. They don't want me here, so they obviously know".

According to court documents obtained by WKYC3, Boylan claims that former Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue was the one who told him he was sacked.

The 33-year-old reportedly refused to be away from the team when given the option by the front office, remaining with the rest of his teammates despite the Cavs' plan to make the most of their youth by maximizing their floor time this season. He not only lost his starting job, he's also appeared in just four of the team's seven games this season, averaging just 12.0 minutes per game.

But the aim, and the goal that I've told all the people, is that we have to go for the championship from the beginning. The next race is in Brazil next weekend, before the season concludes with the Abu Dhabi GP.

Smith has played for four teams in his career, but has been traded three times in his career.

From his soup throwing incident to a game one blunder in the 2018 NBA Finals to facing scrutiny from the league about a "Supreme leg tattoo" and his playing time being cut down completely five games into the season, times have been tough for the former Sixth Man of the Year in Cleveland recently.

"It is hard", he said.

"Yeah", Smith said when asked if he wants to be traded, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. "I can't do that to the fans".

"The Cleveland Cavaliers had an 'option, ' in its sole discretion, to extend the contract of its former Assistant Coach Jim Boylan one additional year for the 2018-2019 National Basketball Association season".
