Following on from the Cleveland Cavaliers' first ever NBA championship, they haven't exactly got their house in order in a hurry.
LeBron James' contract situation was allowed to drag a few weeks past free agency, but most people always knew he was always going to re-sign after such a historic season.
However, Tyronn Lue's coaching staff weren't dealt with so swiftly and J.R Smith is still a free agent.

Smith was far more productive than predicted after arriving via a multiple person trade with New York, and James has been credited with bringing the best out of the 31-year-old.
After the euphoria of winning a title - and remaining topless for the majority of the celebrations - it would appear the two-guard has re-evaluated his worth.
Smith is said to be holding out for $15 million annually from the Cavaliers, who could stretch over their cap limit to retain him.
According to Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com, the Cavs do want Smith back, but aren’t interested in meeting an asking price that no other team would be willing to meet either. They are, essentially, avoiding a bidding war with themselves.
Is Smith worth the money? How many years is he worth? The two sides likely differ on both of those points, but there is something to be said for retaining the parts of a title-winning side too.
If LeBron has his way, we'd expect J.R. back in the Wine and Gold before the season starts. As it stands, he is far from it.
