Last week, J.R. Smith trolled all of the Knicks fans out there by hinting at the fact that he was not going to sign a new deal with New York this summer. But as it turns out, that's all he was doing—trolling.
According to New York Daily News writer Frank Isola, Smith will return to the Knicks lineup next season after agreeing to a new deal with the team earlier today:
