JR Smith overcomes 'very depressed state,' lands with Lakers

LOS ANGELES (AP) JR Smith was not ready to wrap up his 15-year NBA career when he left the Cleveland Cavaliers in late 2018, and the ensuing 20 months were not much fun for the veteran shooter.

"I went through a very depressed state for a long time," Smith said Monday. "I'm a big video gamer, (but) I didn't even play (NBA) 2K anymore. I don't want to hoop, I don't want to work out, I don't want to play 2K, I don't want do anything with basketball."

Thanks to a call from the Los Angeles Lakers, Smith is getting another shot on basketball's biggest stage. He joined the Western Conference leaders for workouts last week before they head to Florida for the conclusion of the NBA season.
