JR Smith Talks Not Going Anywhere

Smith said Thursday there has been little movement in contract negotiations, with the Nuggets or any other team.

"I really don’t know what’s going on. I haven’t had a chance to sit down and talk with the front office yet," Smith said. "I don’t think anything will get messed up. That’s the least of my worries."

Then again, it’s the Nuggets, whose offseason moves are mysterious enough to make forward Carmelo Anthony crack, "Now that I’ve seen what happened to Marcus Camby (traded to the Los Angeles Clippers), I’m taking my career one day at a time."

Denver has said it would exercise its right to match any offer that Smith receives, a statement the guard said may be scaring off suitors.
