It is official that the Los Angeles Lakers will be without Avery Bradley when the season resumes in Orlando. Former NBA champion JR Smith emerged as the favorite to replace the 29-year-old guard.

Sports analyst Stephen A. Smith believes it would be good for the Lakers to add former LeBron’s teammate JR Smith. “I think that JR Smith, believe it or not, can do almost everything that Avery Bradley can do. In some instances, even better,” Stephen A. said on First Take.

JR Smith is without a team since 2019. He was close to joining Los Angeles this season, but eventually the Lakers signed Dion Waiters instead of him.
