J.R. Smith Re-Signs with Cavaliers

J.R. Smith announced Thursday via his Instagram account that he is returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Reports said it's a two-year deal with $5 million being earned next season with a player option on the second year. The deal also included a no-trade clause.

While he struggled early on in the NBA Finals and shot just 31.2 percent from the field in the series, he became a crucial offensive producer in the postseason in general, especially when Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving went down to injuries.

Smith had previously opted out of a $6.4 million contract for next season and became an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

LeBron James took to Twitter to welcome Smith back to Cleveland:

"Welcome back brother @TheRealJRSmith! happy you're sticking around. #TheLand #StriveForGreatness" - Lebron James (@KingJames)
