Former NBA shooting guard J.R. Smith, who last played for the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2019-20 season, was asked about a potential NBA return.

“I don’t know about that,” Smith said laughing. “I’m working towards my degree right now.

“Again, I ain’t signed nothing, so if they come, I’m open to play – but for my right now, it’s working on my degree and trying to get better acclimated with myself and be more self aware of what I got going on so I can be the best version of me.”
