Smith, 34, joined the Lakers in the wake of Avery Bradley deciding to sit out the conclusion of the 2019-20 season.
The journeyman has been linked to the Lakers for the last couple of seasons, mostly because of his strong relationship with superstar LeBron James.
The four-time MVP was thrilled to hear that Smith joined the squad.
Although Smith hasn’t played in the NBA since the 2018-19 season, he knows what it takes to play at a high level. He brings the Lakers formidable shooting and calculated defense.
Over the course of his career, Smith has averages of 12.5 points, 3.2 boards and 2.1 assists per contest.
