The Cavaliers are reportedly offering J.R. Smith to various teams ahead of Thursday's NBA trade deadline, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Terry Pluto.

Smith has been a significant culprit in the Cavs' struggles of late, shooting 31.8 percent from deep since the calendar flipped to 2018. Statistically, the 32-year-old is having one of his worst seasons, and opponents are six points per 100 possessions better when Smith is on the floor.

That reality, combined with his $14.7-million salary next season, means Smith won't fetch the Cavaliers much on his own, but he could be included in a bigger deal. Beyond that, his contract is only partially guaranteed for $3.87 million in 2019-20.
