J.R. Smith will be suing his Chinese team

Keywords: jr smith, china basketball


It seems that the more I write about J.R. Smith, the less it has to do with actual basketball. This time I am forced to scribe about Smith because he has decided to sue his former Chinese team. During the NBA lockout, Smith headed to China to play for Zhejiang Chouzhou. During his time there he racked up $1,078,500 in fines, which accounted for about 1/3rd of his contract. So now Smith wants that money back, and FIBA will let him plead his case when an arbitrator in Switzerland gives him a hearing. And with that, the J.R. Smith saga continues, next up is whether or not he comes back to the Knicks. Fingers crossed for him going back overseas.
