Cavs Reportedly Trading JR Smith to Join LeBron James

JR Smith Possibly Reuniting with LeBron James

The Los Angeles Lakers may get JR Smith since there are rumors that he may reunite with LeBron James!

Read on to get the latest NBA news we’re hearing about JR Smith and LeBron James could be together again… has learned via Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes, that JR Smith is on the chopping block to be traded and he might be headed to the Lakers.

According to Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes, he is saying this about JR Smith:

Cleveland, right now, they are trying to trade JR Smith and whichever team trades for JR right now, most likely he will be waived and when he’s waived, it is my belief he will end up with the Lakers.

Currently, Smith still has one season remaining on the four-year, $57 million deal he signed with the Cavaliers in 2016.

However, the Cavaliers are trying hard to trade him, and because he has an expiring contract, and he is appealing to several teams who could use the cleared out cap space next offseason.

As of right now, the Lakers don’t have enough cap space to sign a third max player, but it is very logical they could go into next season without a third star alongside Anthony Davis and James.

If JR Smith doesn’t work out for the Lakers then there is a possibility that Kyle Korver is someone they could go after, as is Smith.

The reason why JR is a choice for the Lakers is that both James and JR Smith shares an agent, as well, in Rich Paul of Klutch Sports.

We will see what happens…
