JR Smith on Role After Benching: ‘Honestly, I Don’t Know’

Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue elected to switch up the starting lineup for Tuesday’s game against the Phoenix Suns, leaving JR Smith to come off the bench.

"Honestly, I don’t know," Smith said when asked what his new role will be, per Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com.

Kyle Korver started in his place, but McMenamin noted Rodney Hood will assume the starting position when he returns from his back injury.

"But I think it’s good for the first unit, though," Smith clarified. "Because we actually get to have someone out there we’re going to run stuff for and who is a threat, as opposed to having somebody who is not an option."
