Marc Berman's post on New York Knicks | Latest updates on Sulia
J.R. Smith may not get his wish. Woodson said he doesn't know who starts at SG in Washington Thursday but sounded
like over the long haul, he prefers J.R. as Sixth Man. Over the weekend, J.R. Smith said he wanted to start this season - or at least until Iman Shumpert returns in December or January. But Woodson feels Smith can compete for Sixth Man of the Year because he needs bench scoring. Brewer is probably the lead candidate to start once he starts practice - perhaps as soon as a week. Who starts at SG in Washington? Jason Kidd? "I'll evaluate tomorrow, we’ll walk through some things and then I’ll make that decision,'' Woodson said today. "Right now James White is out, Ronnie Brewer is out, I kinda like JR where he is in terms of coming off the bench. But he could start too, you just never know. At this point I haven’t made that decision yet on who’s going to start at the two.'' J.R. said he's tired of being looked at as a career Sixth Man. But Woodson said, "Everybody can’t start. I’ve got a nice mixture of guys in that starting unit from an offensive standpoint.''
