Cavs guard JR Smith accepted on Thursday that requires him to pay $600 to a fan after he tossed the fan's cellphone into a New York City construction site in late July. Smith was issued a desk ticket for misdemeanor criminal mischief as a result of the incident.The case will be sealed if Smith doesn't get into trouble in the next six months. He paid $600 for the fan's cell phone as part of the deal. “He was issued a ticket, paid for the cell phone upgrade, and the case is being dismissed and sealed – this is a non-event,” Alex Spiro, Smith's attorney, says.

He stabilized the second unit with his play and at times was the finishing point guard on the floor. Behind the scenes, Rondo was a valuable leader and constant voice in the ears of the younger Lakers. He'll still be able to do that from the bench but the Lakers could turn to Brandon Ingram to handle backup point guard duties a bit more.
