07:22 AM ET 12.30 | A shakeup is coming to New York, after all, though perhaps not on a blockbuster scale. As the Knicks inch closer to signing forward/center Jeremy Tyler, they are strongly considering cutting Chris Smith over center Cole Aldrich to open up a roster spot, sources say. The Knicks' decision to keep Smith on the regular-season roster stirred emotion among the team's fan base because of his ties to J.R. Smith. (He's J.R.'s younger brother.) Both the Knicks and Chris Smith have acknowledged that Smith's surname was a factor in the team's decision to keep him. Smith began the season with the Knicks' D-League affiliate. ... His salary of $490,814 is already guaranteed, according to league sources, so the Knicks would not be saving any money if they cut Smith over Aldrich.

Will that get you to the playoffs? Will that guarantee JR to play better? Is this really a big news?
