Chris Smith hoping to join brother J.R. on the Knicks

Now that J.R. Smith has officially signed with the Knicks, his younger brother Chris is looking to make it into the pros, as well.

Chris is in Nevada, playing for the Knicks’ summer league team. Last season Chris participated in the Knicks’ training camp, but suffered a knee injury and was eventually waived.

He decided to stay with New York, and that decision has helped him grow as a player, according to Newsday.

Now that Jason Kidd has retired, the Knicks may be looking for new point guards, a position that Chris is hoping to fill. And playing with his brother wouldn’t be hurt, either.

“My goal is to make training camp, make the team and have the brotherly tandem that everyone has been talking about,” Chris said.
