Disgruntled Cavaliers forward J.R. Smith has gotten his wish: He is parting ways with Cleveland.
Smith and the Cavs front office have been at odds all season.
Nobody Panic! Bitcoin Bear Market Prompts Reassurance From Crypto Pundits
Bitcoin Cash is falling like deadweight in the air, besides it is believed to have been the trigger to the selloff in the market. And in the murky world of semi-regulated crypto markets, catalysts for the sharp price volatility can be hard to pinpoint.
The news comes in the wake of Smith telling The Athletic's Jason Lloyd that he doesn't believe the team is trying to win games. "I think that was always the plan".
The 33-year-old returned to his hometown franchise in 2014 and immediately repaid them by taking them to the National Basketball Association title in 2016, defeating the Golden State Warriors. JR Smith isn't buying it.

James certainly didn't enjoy the hostile reception he got almost eight years ago, but he had the last laugh, putting up 38 points and eight rebounds in just 30 minutes - he didn't play in the fourth quarter - as the Heat steamrolled the Cavs 118-90.
"I don't want my legacy to be remembered like that in Cleveland", Smith said, according to the website. The LeBron James-led Los Angeles Lakers visit Quicken Loans Arena Wednesday night in what is undoubtedly the most vigorously circled game on Cleveland Cavaliers fans' calendars. "I don't think that's fair to the trainers or the equipment guys", Smith said. "And personally I'm in a wholly different space than I was in 2010, so s-- doesn't bother me". "I don't like the statement of getting bought out".
