Lakers In Talks With J.R. Smith

Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown spoke with J.R. Smith yesterday about the former Denver Nugget possibly coming to Los Angeles,  according to the L.A. Times.

Smith signed with a Chinese pro team during the NBA lockout and was obligated to honor the contract until this month. He is now able to sign with an NBA team for the remainder of the season.

Since the Lakers are over the salary cap and have already spent their mid-level exception, the team can only offer Smith a prorated portion of the veterans’ minimum, a drastic pay cut from his $6.8 million salary last season with the Denver Nuggets.  Last season, Smith averaged 12.3 points shooting, 2.2 assists, and 4.1 rebounds per game.

The Lakers have also reportedly been interested in free-agent Gilbert Arenas to fill a perimeter scoring void.
