Now that combo guard Avery Bradley has officially opted out of the season restart at the end of July, the Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly finalizing a deal with LeBron James’ former teammate scorer JR Smith as a replacement.
Three-time Super Bowl Champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe tells Award-winning journalist, TV host and author Skip Bayless why he likes this addition to the Lakers, but worries Smith won’t get the playing time he needs to be beneficial.
Plus Bayless tells Shannon why former Sixth Man of the Year’s history shows he may not be as much help as some think:
Last season, ex-NBA champion was mostly away from the Cleveland Cavaliers and appeared in only 11 games, averaging 6.7 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. On 34.2% shooting from the floor, 30.8% from deep.
