J.R. Smith is taking his talents to China. The Nuggets reserve has signed a one-year contract with a Chinese team that doesn't have an opt-out clause, meaning the unrestricted free agent likely won't play in the NBA next season. Smith will play for Zhejiang Wanma.

"J.R. really wants to play basketball this season," Smith's agent Leon Rose said in an e-mail Wednesday. "His decision to accept the deal was based on the uncertainty of the NBA labor negotiations, a significant offer from the club and the unique opportunity to play the game he loves in another country. J.R. is looking forward to the challenge."
