New guard was stepping into a larger role for the Knicks before Monday’s trade, and Fantasy owners were starting to take note. Smith was the seventh-most added player in CBSSports.com leagues over the last week, being scooped up in 16 percent of all leagues. Did you just waste a roster move, given his move to Cleveland?

In a word, probably. Smith was averaging 14.7 points and 3.7 assists per game since returning from a lengthy absence due to a plantar fascia tear in his left foot, and was benefitting from the Knicks’ other varied injuries. The Cavaliers are similarly besieged by injuries right now, so Smith could have a few games where he gets his feet wet the only way he knows how — by hoisting up lots and lots of contested jumpers.

However, in the long run, Smith is likely to fill a similar role as Dion Waiters did for the Cavs. Though Waiters had a 24.1 percent usage rate prior to his trade, he was averaging just 10.5 points and 2.2 assists per game in 23.8 minutes overall. The Cavaliers are exceptionally top-heavy when they are at fullBernardo Silva has written to the FA to say he regrets the fact his social media post may have unintentionally caused offence, reports BBC Sport.BBC Sport understands Bernardo personally wrote the letter, which was submitted before Thursday’s 17:00 B strength, so there just won’t be many opportunities for Smith to contribute. He can give you some shooting and assists in any role, but probably won’t do enough to be more than a fourth forward in category-based leagues moving forward.
