JR Smith is the first name that has come out as an option to replace Avery Bradley in the Los Angeles Lakers’ rotation. Smith has not played in the NBA since the 2018-19 season when he was with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Smith would bring a jolt of energy off the bench for the Los Angeles Lakers as well as playoff experience. JR Smith worked out for the Lakers earlier this season when LA opted to sign Dion Waiters instead.

Another name that has popped up for the Los Angeles Lakers is Nick Young… aka Swaggy P. Nick Young responded to an Instagram post from Adrian Wojnarowski saying that he is ready to play again in the NBA. Nick Young last played for the Denver Nuggets during the 2018-19 NBA season, but only appeared in four games during his time there. The veteran has been a consistent three-point shooter throughout his career and could find his way back to Los Angeles now that there is an open roster spot.
