Exiled guard J.R. Smith may be somewhere closer to accepting a buyout after the trade deadline rather than getting traded.
JR has been working out and wants to play but his contract is a serious burden as the Cavs are looking to find a trade for him. The Rockets and Warriors may be willing to give Smith a shot if he gets bought out but he belongs to the waiver wire until he is back to playing basketball.
