Source: Chris Smith Has Signed Into NBA D-League, Will Be Available In Player Pool
After being waived by the New York Knicks recently to make room for Jeremy Tyler, Chris Smith (J.R. Smith’s brother) has signed into the NBA D-League according to a team source.
Smith played with New York’s NBADL affiliate (Erie BayHawks) earlier this season, and averaged 11.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 2.6 assists in 24.6 minutes.
It seems as though Smith will attempt the D-League route to ultimately land on another NBA roster again. Depending on the waiver process, Smith’s timing could be nice as the NBA D-League Showcase kicks off tomorrow and concludes January 9.
