Nuggets' J.R. Smith Cited For Using Scooter Without License

Denver Nuggets guard J.R. Smith is known to be a bit of a troublemaker, and this has not pleased George Karl all that much. So much that the Nuggets and Smith may walk apart as he is an unrestricted free agent this summer (well, pending a successful resolution to the NBA's labor situation).

Now there's one more reason Smith may want to go elsewhere. He was cited for riding a scooter without a license in Miami over the weekend, the Denver Post reports via TMZ. Smith already had his license revoked until 2012 following a reckless driving offense that resulted in one death.

It's probably time to move on from Smith. The Nuggets could use the No. 22 draft pick to select a shooter like Providence's Marshon Brooks. The team will also need money to possibly re-sign Nene, and if a new, lower salary cap number is instituted this would be the time to put the money to good use elsewhere.
