  • Larry Drew Cavs

Drew wants the Cavs to restructure his contract if he's going to become the team's interim coach this season following firing of Tyronn Lue, who was dismissed Sunday.

Smith seemed to suggest that Lue playing the Cavs veterans may have been his death knell. He not only lost his starting job, he's also appeared in just four of the team's seven games this season, averaging just 12.0 minutes per game.

Smith was asked by a reporter Thursday if he hoped to be traded.

Smith is out of the rotation and he has discussed with the front office of the Cavaliers the possibility of leaving the team until a trade can be found.

Smith is averaging a career-low 2.5 points per game on 23.1 percent shooting this season.

"They asked me if I wanted to be around the team and if I didn't I could leave and go home and do whatever", he said. Former Louisville coach Rick Pitino and ex-Seton Hall coach Bobby Gonzalez are among those with interest in the Cavs, sources said.

"I had a conversation with [Lue] about it, too", Smith told Cleveland.com. "But at the end of the day I can't take it out on my teammates". I can't do that to my teammates.

"It is hard", he said.

"Yeah. ... They don't want me here". "I can't do that to the fans". "Moves could've been made to prevent this situation, but of course we're in this situation now, so, it is what it is".

The 6-foot-6 veteran has started 218 of 248 games since the Cavs acquired him in 2015. He is a career 37.3 percent 3-point shooter and ranks 12th in National Basketball Association history with 1,917 3-pointers made.
