Nuggets Land J.R. Smith from the Bulls
The Nuggets acquired 6-foot-6 shooting guard J.R. Smith from the Chicago Bulls on July 20. The 20-year-old Smith spent his first two NBA seasons with the Hornets, averaging 9.2 ppg. He shot .394 from three-point range in 2005-06.
Although it doesn't say in the blurb, the Nuggs sent Howard Eisley and two 2nd-round picks to Chi-Town for Smith.
He has some flaws in his game, but he's young and athletic, and he plays the 2-guard spot. He's better then everybody else we've put at the spot. Thank God.
