The Timberwolves may be falling behind in the J.R. Smith race. The Indiana Pacers can already offer him the same salary and a higher chance at the playoffs. It now appears that Smith has already met with Mike Brown of the Lakers. According to Smith they had a “great talk.” Also, the Orlando Magic have thrown their hats into the ring and may be the front-runner. Smith would fill a large need for the Wolves but, as I mentioned before, can cause plenty of headaches.
