J.R. Smith Reportedly Expected To Join The Lakers If Waived By The Cavs

It looks like we might be seeing JR Smith and LeBron James back together on the same team.

According to Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes, if the Cavs are currently looking for a trade partner to unload JR Smith's contract.

Cleveland is right now trying to trade JR Smith and whichever team trades for JR right now, most likely he will be waived. When he is waived, it is my belief that he will end up with the Los Angeles Lakers.

At this current moment in time, the Los Angeles Lakers don't have enough cap space to sign a third max player and very well could go into next season without a third star alongside Anthony Davis and LeBron James.

Look for the Lakers to land some complementary pieces like Kyle Korver and JR Smith who is with Klutch Sports and Rich Paul.
