LeBron James and Tristan Thompson React to J.R. Smith Signing

Tristan Thompson, J.R. Smith, and LeBron James

After a lengthy back-and-forth between the Cleveland Cavaliers and J.R. Smith, the two parties have finally agreed to a four-year, $57 million deal to bring back the shooting guard.

Smith was a vital component in last year’s NBA Finals as he drained several key 3-pointers and stepped up defensively when needed.

A pair of teammates, who couldn’t have been more thrilled with the signing, were fellow Klutch Sports Group members Tristan Thompson and LeBron James. The two expressed their elation Friday night via social media.

With Smith finally back on board, the Cavs bring back its core roster last season. The defending champs open their season on Oct. 25 against the New York Knicks.
