Be careful what you wish for

The NBA is considering whether Cleveland Cavaliers guard JR Smith's public acknowledgement Thursday that he wants to be traded constitutes a fineable offense.  

Smith, unhappy with his playing time, was asked by a reporter Thursday if he hoped to be traded.

Players are not allowed to make public trade requests. Former Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe was fined $10,000 for tweeting, "I don't wanna be here," last year.


J.R. needs to quietly go about his business. Telling reporters you want a trade is not going to get you anywhere. 

It'll cost you though.
