J.R. Smith Sends Message of Appreciation After Finalizing Deal With Lakers

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski confirmed the report, adding that the a contract is expected to get done on Monday. And we also know numerous players who have either been signed to teams or have opted out of the National Basketball Association restart for various reasons.

As for Crawford, he is one of the best available free agents. Bradley made his decision June 23, meeting a deadline that allowed the Lakers to replace him on the roster. This happened after Bradley chose to sit out of the NBA Restart to take care of his son. When the season was halted on March 11 because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Lakers held a 5.5-game lead over the Clippers in the Western Conference standings. After all, he has significant experience with superstar LeBron James.

Former and beloved Cleveland Cavalier J.R. Smith, who is now a free agent, is reportedly working through the final steps of a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers to join the team as the National Basketball Association season restarts in Orlando, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. He appeared in only 11 games for the Cavaliers past year before reaching a buyout agreement with them. They will travel to Orlando for the much-awaited restart the following week.

This is exciting news for Los Angeles Lakers fans, and they are looking forward to witness James and Smith together. What we don't know - and I can not stress this enough - is how teams will look when they come back.
