Is J.R. Smith Thinking About the Knicks?

J.R. Smith, who may be coming back to the USA this spring if his Chinese team doesn't make a deep playoff run, will be an unrestricted free agent. The Knicks evidently have some interest in him, and perhaps he has some interest in them as well.

A few weeks ago (though I can't seem to find it on the internet), J.R. tweeted pondering what it would be like to play on Broadway. Today, he also tweeted about the Knicks. Is this a hint?
How many people does the Garden seat?
To be fair, Smith then tweeted "How many does people does staples seat?" so he's not entirely thinking about the Knicks if his tweets are any indication.

I'm not entirely a big fan of Smith's game, but he'd be a huge improvement to the bench. He can fill it up with the best of them, and would probably assume the 6th man role for the Knicks. They still have their stretch exception (2 yrs/$5 mil) sitting in their backpocket. Would that be enough for J.R.?
