NBA Trade Rumors: J.R. Smith Still Unsigned; Lakers Interested To Sign Him And Trade Jordan Clarkson
J.R. Smith is still holding off on signing for the Cleveland Cavaliers this season, and it looks like the Lakers might just snag him from the negotiating table.
The Cavs are in quite a bit of a pickle this season as they could lose one of their key players from last year's championship team. While the team from Ohio might lose out big time this year, their inability to sign the guard might be an early Christmas present to Laker fans as the team is reportedly interested in signing Smith.
If the Lakers can pull this off, they would add more perimeter shooting to their roster. J.R. Smith is also known for his good defense so that will be a huge boon for teams that are a bit on the younger side like the Lakers.
Add the fact that Smith has been known to heat up on offense quite quickly and they can have someone who can shoulder some of the scoring load while their new super rookie, Brandon Ingram, is still finding his NBA legs. The Los Angeles Lakers would also be getting some championship experience to the young core from the streaky shooting guard.
As for the Cavs, they better speed things up when it comes to appeasing J.R. Smith, as a lot of teams are looking to pounce and take advantage of the contract impasse.
In other Lakers news, the team is rumored to be exploring potential trade scenarios for one of their talented guards, Jordan Clarkson.
The report comes from the heels of Clarkson starting to feel his role getting greatly reduced by getting benched. Head coach, Luke Walton has tried to suppress the rumors saying that the guard will have starter-like minutes and constantly heaping praises at the guard.
But the truth is, Jordan Clarkson, has a really high potential and might be too good to be relegated to the bench.
If the Lakers do have to let go of Jordan Clarkson, then the J.R. Smith signing could be huge for the storied franchise looking for redemption.
