J.R. Smith’s Brother Hints at Possible Connection With Western Conference Contender

Whether Smith is currently in negotiations with the Rockets or his brother is just hoping to see Smith join forces with one of the most dynamic backcourts in the league remains to be seen.
The 3-pointer is a critical weapon in the Rockets’ arsenal. They are the league’s most prolific 3-point shooting team with 45.3 attempts per game. If Houston signs him to a contract, Smith should feel right at home in a Rockets uniform, jacking up shots from beyond the arc with regularity.
After four and a half seasons with the Cavs, the 15-year veteran could be rejuvenated by playing for a title contender once again.
He could very well be a solid contributor to a championship contender. The 33-year-old shooting guard is a terrific catch-and-shoot option for any team that is looking to improve its outside shooting.
