JR Smith will reportedly meet with Bucks

JR Smith

JR Smith was waived by the Cleveland Cavaliers this week after they were unable to find a trade suitor for him, and the veteran swingman is already drawing interest from at least one team.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Smith was scheduled to meet with the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday.

As Charania notes, the Bucks are in search of a perimeter shooter. That is Smith’s specialty, though he appeared in just 11 games for the Cavs last season and shot 30.8 percent from three-point range, which was his lowest mark since his rookie year.

Smith did what he could to help facilitate a trade, but no team was interested in giving up anything for him. There had been some talk that he could reunite with LeBron James by joining the Los Angeles Lakers, though that is reportedly not likely.
