It may be time for J.R. Smith and the Cleveland Cavaliers to part ways.

It seems as if the Cavaliers don't plan on playing Smith and he appears to have no interest in spending his final National Basketball Association seasons as a benchwarmer for a lottery team. "They don't want me here, so they obviously know".

Dropped from the rotation and unhappy with his role on a team rebuilding through youth, Smith said Thursday that he wants to be traded.

"After Mr. Boyland hired [Cleveland law firm Thorman Petrov Group], Christopher Thorman wrote to the Cavaliers initially to "informally" resolve matters related to Mr. Boylan's employment, only to then follow up with an outrageous written demand for $6.174 million dollars", the team said in a statement.

From his soup throwing incident to a game one blunder in the 2018 NBA Finals to facing scrutiny from the league about a "Supreme leg tattoo" and his playing time being cut down completely five games into the season, times have been tough for the former Sixth Man of the Year in Cleveland recently.

Pakistan overturns Christian woman Asia Bibi's blasphemy verdict, death sentence

Love's injury and recovery is another major blow to the Cavs, who are 1-7 and fired coach Tyronn Lue on Sunday.

"Yeah", Smith said when asked if he wants to be traded, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Smith's pricy contract makes it almost impossible for the Cavs to trade him now.

"It is hard", he said. He is a career 37.3 percent 3-point shooter and ranks 12th in National Basketball Association history with 1,917 3-pointers made. "I can't do that to these fans, I can't do it to the city".

Per Spotrac, his cap hit is $14.7 million this year, and although he has a partial guarantee of $3.87 million next year, that would require expensive assets to come back to Cleveland.
