  • Smith failed to record a single statistic in just eight minutes during Thursday's 103-101 victory over the Clippers. After going off for 20 points in the Lakers' final scrimmage, Smith came back to earth Thursday, missing his only shot of the night. Dion Waiters (11 points, three rebounds, two assists and one block) certainly looked far more comfortable and thus appears to be ahead of Smith in the pecking order. This could fluctuate, though, especially if Smith gets hot at some point. Until then, he remains merely a speculative pickup if you need points and threes.

  • Smith erupted for 20 points (6-9 FG, 6-7 3PT, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and a steal in Monday's scrimmage against Washington. Smith accumulated all those stats in just 25 minutes off the bench. Playing without Anthony Davis, LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma and Dwight Howard, the Lakers handed things off to the reserves and completed a perfect 3-0 record in scrimmage play.

  • Smith tallied six points (2-5 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two assists, one rebound and one steal in 15 minutes during Thursday's 108-104 scrimmage loss to the Mavericks. Smith saw NBA action for the first time in more than 600 days and certainly looked fit and healthy. Smith was called in only three weeks ago to replace Avery Bradley, (personal) who has elected to sit out the resumption. As a player who only offers upside in three-pointers, Smith is unlikely to have any value outside of streaming in almost every resumption format.

  • Smith signed a contract with the Lakers on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Smith had already finalized his agreement with Los Angeles before the NBA's transaction window closed Tuesday, so Wojnarowski's report merely confirms what was expected. With Avery Bradley opting to sit out the season restart in Orlando, Smith could be a candidate to pick up some of the minutes that are now available, though the likes of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Alex Caruso may be first in line to replace the starting shooting guard. In any case, Smith, a career 37.3 percent shooter from distance, will give the Lakers another veteran option on the wing.

  • The Lakers are expected to finalize a deal with Smith before the league's transaction window closes Tuesday, Marc Stein of the New York Times reports. News of a potential Smith signing emerged last week in the wake of Avery Bradley opting out of playing in Orlando, and it appears a deal will be reached within the next 36 hours before final rosters are locked on Wednesday. Smith, of course, has a history of playing alongside LeBron James in Cleveland, but the 34-year-old hasn't appeared in an NBA game since November 2018. During that 2018-19 campaign, Smith appeared in just 11 contests for the Cavaliers and shot 30.8 percent from three-point range.
