J.R. Smith leads the class of NBA Free Agents still available as the new season approaches. With all 30 teams beginning their training camps next week, we look at noteworthy free agents still on the market.


Even though Smith has decided to skip the Cleveland Cavaliers’ preseason camp, league sources expect the veteran shooting guard to re-sign with the NBA champions.

Smith’s situation is similar to Tristan Thompson, who, too, skipped camp last year due to a contract dispute.

However, Thompson was re-signed by the Cavaliers just in time for the preseason.

According to ESPN’s Mark Stein, Smith is still insistent on receiving a five-year contract in the range of $15 million per season. Since the Cavs own his Bird Rights, they are in a position to go over the salary cap.

Restricted Free Agent

Donatas Motiejunas, F (Previous team: Houston Rockets)

While Motiejunas has received interest from the New York Knicks, who don’t really have the needed salary cap to pursue him, Josh Smith has been linked with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Preseason begins on Oct.3 so a lot of the aforementioned players could get invited to training camps ahead of next week.

Will J.R. Smith shock the world and sign elsewhere? And will any of the other free agents land deals with title contenders? Stay tuned.
