J.R. Smith Fined 50K for Shoelace Incident; Knicks Looking to Trade Him

J.R. Smith is continuing his shoelace incidents, and unfortunately for him the NBA has responded. Smith was warned by the NBA for untying Shawn Marion’s shoes and Smith proceeded to attempt to untie Greg Monroe of the Detroit Pistons’ shoes during New York’s close victory over the Detroit Pistons last night.

After failing to follow the NBA’s warning, Smith was fined by the NBA $50,000 for the incident and it has to be based more on the principle of Smith failing to follow NBA orders.

Now a report from ESPN NY says that the Knicks will be looking to trade Smith, but that will be tough, as Smith is owed three years, and $18 million on his contract that he signed this offseason.

Smith has been wearing multiple shoes, and it’s an adventure to track. Smith recently wore the Air Jordan 12 Retro “Taxi” during the Knicks’ game against the Pistons. He’s also worn Nike Hyperdunk 2013′s among other shoes.
