Knicks assign Chris Smith to D-LeaguePosted by Inside Hoops
New York Knicks President General Manager Steve Mills announced today that the team has assigned guard Chris Smith to the Erie Bayhawks of the NBA Development League.
Smith, 6-2, 200-pounds, has not appeared on a game since signing as a free agent on Sep. 10, 2013.
It’ll be interesting to see how well Smith plays in the D-League. Many people were surprised that the Knicks gave him a contract, and suspect it was mostly to make his brother J.R. happy — which is a strange reason to sign a player.
