Despite recent spikes in COVID-19 in states that reopened, The NBA still plans to resume its season in Disney. Some players like Avery Bradley chose to sit out the “bubble” season and that left open some spots. Swing man JR Smith was the recipient of that spot as the Lakers try to sure up their roster for a title run.
The latest signing will bring JR Smith to a team with his former running mate LeBron James. Earlier in the season, there were rumors the Smith was on the Lakers’ radar when they were looking for a shooting guard. However, the team signed Philly native Dion Waiters instead.
Last team fans seem, Smith, he was beating a looter in the streets for allegedly vandalizing his car.
