Los Angeles Lakers Find Replacement for Avery Bradley, Sign JR Smith

The Los Angeles Lakers are signing JR Smith.

The 34-year shooting guard has garnered interest from the Lakers far before the start of the hiatus, but once Avery Bradley opted to sit out the NBA’s return, the Lakers moved on quickly. Both sides are expected to finalize the deal before the league’s transaction window closure.

Smith has not played since November 19, 2018 and was waived by the Cleveland Cavaliers last July. He averaged 6.7 points and 1.6 rebounds per games in 11 appearances prior to getting deactivated by the organization. For his career, Smith is a 37.3% three-point shooter and is currently eighth on the all-time makes list.

Despite the fact that Smith comes with his infamous quirks and behavioural concerns, he remains a solid defender as well as a streaky shooter who can catch fire at any moment. While he may not be in a crucial part of the game with the clock winding down, the Lakers do received an additional veteran shooter for their impending playoff run.

A former NBA champion with the Cavaliers, Smith brings plenty of playoff experience to an already veteran Lakers squad.
