Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith and his brother, Chris Smith, are the authors of a new children's book called "HoopSmiths."

The book, which was released Tuesday, is about the brothers' journey to play in the NBA.

"J.R. and Chris both have dreams of playing in the NBA, but they quickly realize they can't do it alone," the book description reads. "Join these two brothers on their quest of commitment as they learn the value of teamwork and work toward achieving their ultimate goal!"

A portion of the proceeds from the book will go to the J.R. Smith Youth Foundation, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin.
