The Clippers are in pursuit of J.R. Smith, according to a source.
Smith was on the radar of the Clippers even before the team lost Chauncey Billups for the remainder of the season. Smith can now be offered a bigger role with the Clippers.
Chris Paul has taken a lead role in recruiting Smith, as they are former teammates with the Hornets.
The Knicks are the presumed favorite to sign Smith.
