There are many unanswered questions surrounding the J.R. Smith acquisition.

Whose minutes does he take? Will he share a backcourt with Iman Shumpert? What about Steve Novak? Bill Walker?

Mike D'Antoni wasn't ready to speak in specifics about the Smith acquisition this morning because the Knicks hadn't made an official announcement.

So he didn't have an answer when asked how Smith fits into his rotation.

"That'll be a hurdle we'll get over," the coach said. "Obviously, he's a talented basketball player and you can always use talent. But basically it's not going to change up a whole lot what we're doing."

We'd like to know what you think.

Should Smith take minutes away from Shumpert? What about starting him over Landry Fields? What about Walker? Shumpert could fill Walker's role and share the backcourt with Smith. Would that work? Does this mean Steve Novak won't see significant minutes?
