San Antonio Spurs

February 8, 2012 by staff 

San Antonio Spurs, Conventional wisdom and word on the street suggest that J.R. Smith may wind up with the New York Knicks when he’s eligible to sign with an NBA team again. The recent injury to Chauncey Billups may make the Los Angeles Clippers an equally compelling destination.

However, there remains some indication that the San Antonio Spurs are also interested in signing Smith.

Smith may be looking for an opportunity to start, pad his statistics and set himself up for maximum financial security. To those ends, Los Angeles and New York look like perfect fits.

In New York, Smith would find Mike D’Antoni’s uptempo offense the perfect playground for displaying his nearly limitless offensive upside. He’d also become the undisputed third option behind Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire.

In Los Angeles, J.R. would play in a similarly large market and a high-octane offense ripe for the highlight reels. Smith would instantly become the dynamic scorer to complement the league’s best point guard and most exciting young power forward. With Billups out for the season, Smith would have every bit the opportunity he’d find in New York.

To be sure, there are also plenty of reasons Smith is unlikely to sign with the Spurs (even if the Knicks and Clippers weren’t more probable alternatives).
