1 Min Read

The Los Angeles Lakers made headlines late Tuesday when veteran guard Avery Bradley decided to opt out of the resumption of the 2019-20 NBA season in Orlando, Fla.

In a stunning turn of events, according to Adrian Wojnarowksi of ESPN, the Lakers are close to signing former Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith.

Smith has been without a team since the 2018-19 season, when he played 11 games for the Cavs, who eventually waived him.

He has career averages of 12.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.
