The Lakers should be considered an "unlikely destination" for J.R. Smith, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Lakers are the only team that's really been tied to Smith, so that's not great for him. L.A. has done a decent job filling out their roster and no longer has a need for Smith, and his market figures to be fairly limited. Rebuilding teams are unlikely to see him as a typical veteran presence considering the Cavs told him to go home rather than sulk around their young players, and he has a lot to prove after last appearing in a game on November 18.
