By SPORTS NETWORK
Free agent swingman J.R. Smith used social media to reveal who he'll be playing for this season, tweeting on Friday, "New York Knicks It Is!"
There has been no official word from the Knicks yet.
Smith, who recently returned from playing in China, was a teammate of current Knicks star Carmelo Anthony in Denver.
A career 37.1 percent three-point shooter, Smith has averaged 12.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 503 games with the Hornets and Nuggets.
The Clippers were said to be one of Smith's other preferred landing spots.
