The Los Angeles Lakers don’t really need to make a change on the roster. The team didn’t sign a new name because the current squad stands on top of the Western Conference. LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the rest of the guys have built the perfect chemistry. On one occasion, LeBron said that his team is where it needs to be. In other words, there’s no need for a change. Well, LeBron posted something that got people talking about J.R. Smith. Will LeBron James change the Lakers roster or is this just a speculation?
The free-agent guard hasn’t played an NBA game since November 2018. In his latest post, LeBron praised Smith. What does this mean? Many interpret it as an announcement for the next move. Will the Lakers try to get Smith?
“That boi will take and make the toughest shots!! #Facts,” LeBron wrote in the post. “We called him 911 because when there’s an emergency give it to him and its cash.”
Smith won an NBA title with the Cavaliers in 2016. This post may actually
support the idea of bringing Smith in Los Angeles. The Lakers need a guard that
can add some scoring to the second unit. Smith is an excellent shooter, and he
has won some really great games. He would be a perfect addition to the Lakers
of this post says it all.
Heavy’s Brandon “Scoop B.” Robinson reported that the Lakers will workout Smith. This happened in January. It looks like the workout has taken place, and the team is trying its option with Smith. The All-Star break is over. Is Smith coming to LA?
Speculation: Smith is the perfect addition to LeBron James and the Lakers roster
Smith shoots 37.3 percent from 3-point range for his pro career. LeBron leads his team with 2.1 3-point field goals made per contest, attempting 6.2 shots from beyond the arc per game. Yes, that’s team-high. He also hits his 3s at a 34.5 percent clip.
Caldwell-Pope has the best percentage of all Lakers players who attempt more
than three 3-pointers per game. He nets 41.5 of his shots from deep.
In a recent video, we can see Smith doing an excellent workout and smashing some great 3-pointers.
Will Lakers head coach Frank Vogel change his mind about the roster? Maybe they will add another player after all.
