J.R. Smith Rumors: Magic GM Otis Smith Says Orlando Isn't Interested, According To Report

Denver Nuggets free agent J.R. Smith has been making the rounds trying to find his next landing spot in the NBA, and has already tweeted out a list of preferred destinations on his Twitter page: "NYK? LAL? LAC? CHI? ORL? iNDI?" He has spoken with Mike Brown of the L.A. Lakers and Vinny Del Negro of the L.A. Clippers already, but it appears that the Orlando Magic can be crossed off the list. The Orlando Sentinel reports that GM Otis Smith has indicated that the team is not interested in adding the mercurial guard to the mix.

With Orlando seemingly off the table, it appears that the Clippers, Lakers and Knicks are emerging as the favorites to obtain Smith's services. The 26 year old shooting guard has a career average of 12.5 points per game and shoots 37.1 percent from beyond the arc.
