You can't figure this out for yourself ? Easy. Smith was a local product from a small school, and the word was that he wouldn't get drafted. King knew that if he had a choice that the Philly kid would agree to play for us on our summer league team, and we would get a free look at him, so why draft him ? As where Bobby Jones was very well liked and regarded. In fact he was seriously being looked at by Portland in the early, early 2nd round. So when he got to Minnesota's 2nd round selection, King made the move.
And as for that Euro guy, we didn't draft him, we bought his rights for Cash.
So that's a completely different thing. King knew that unless a late 2nd round team took a flier on Smith, that he would have the first opportunity to get a glance at him because Smith had already told him before hand that he would sign with the 76ers IF he wasn't drafted.
That answer your question ?
