The Cleveland Cavaliers did what many believed was impossible last season by defeating the Golden State Warriors to win their first-ever NBA championship.
The Dubs were the reigning champions, had just won a record-setting 73 regular season games and were leading the Finals 3-1, but a LeBron James-inspired Cavs produced a never-seen-before turnaround to clinch the Larry O'Brien trophy in seven games.
It's come as no surprise that the Cavaliers have not messed with their title-winning roster too much as Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving and, of course, LeBron, have all returned this season.
However, important role-player, J.R. Smith, is yet to ink a deal with the franchise and is currently still a free agent.
The 31-year-old shooting guard has reportedly asked for a pay rise from his last deal and despite calls from LeBron and Carmelo Anthony to get the deal done, Cleveland are seemingly being stubborn in negotiations.
The story took another twist yesterday when the Cavaliers signed 30-year-old guard Toney Douglas, adding yet more competition in the backcourt and seemingly taking up Smith's spot.
The former New York Knicks man posted a curious tweet that suggested the news had left him speechless.
With LeBron lobbying for his signature, it's hard to imagine something won't be sorted out sooner rather than later. However, Smith doesn't have many bargaining chips in the way of interest from around the league right now.
