The Los Angeles are going to work out veteran guards, Dion Waiters and JR Smith this week according Shams Charania of The Athletic. The team released Troy Daniels last week. He was arguably their best shooter along with Danny Green. That move opened up a roster spot for a free agent to sign with the team.
JR Smith will always be remembered for his infamous blunder in game 1 of the NBA finals. Many forget that he played a vital role in the 3-1 comeback for the Cleveland Cavaliers. He is a very good shooter, something the Lakers desperately need. If he plays around 20 minutes a night, Smith can offer a valuable scoring impact off the bench. JR hasn’t played in quite some time so it may take him some time to get acclimated to the team’s system. As soon as he gets comfortable, JR Smith will provide valuable space within the offense.
I believe The Los Angeles Lakers should sign Smith. He is hungry and ready to play in the NBA again. Let’s see if the Lakers decide to make this move.
