The Cavs have waived J.R. Smith, per Shams Charania.
There was a 5:00 PM waiver deadline and the Cavs tried to deal him prior to its passing, but to no avail. Smith will likely latch on with a contender or a team that is lacking on the wings, though he shouldn't be expecting a big role after sitting on the sidelines since November when the Cavs sent him away from the team for off-court reasons. The Lakers have been the most frequently mentioned landing spot so far.
