J.R. Smith just copped a sweet deal in his cell phone throwing incident back in July … TMZ Sports has learned, and if he stays outta trouble for 6 months … he’s totally in the clear.
ICYMI — Swish allegedly took a fan’s cell phone and threw it into a construction site … after the guy tried to snap a pic of the Cleveland Cavs star outside of The Park, an NYC hotspot.
Smith — who appeared before a judge in a Manhattan courtroom Thursday morning with attorney Alex Spiro — had his case adjourned in contemplation of dismissal.
Plain talk — as long as he buys the fan a new cell phone ($600) AND doesn’t screw up … the case will be dismissed.
Spiro told us …”He was issued a ticket, paid for the cell phone upgrade, and the case is being dismissed and sealed – this is a non event.”
