He's like Kendall Gill back in the days.
A couple of franchises have tried with him.
New Orleans tried with him. That didn't work.
When Denver traded away Melo, they tried to give Smith the opportunity to be the franchise player. That didn't work.
He doesn't have the mentality to be a franchise player.
