Chris Smith released from D-League team

Chris Smith has been released from the Eric Bayhawks (Begley, March 4).


2:45 p.m.: Smith left the team days ago, unhappy with his playing time (Wojnarowski).

Smith is the younger brother of J.R. Smith and played in two games with the Knicks this season.

Is there any way Knicks can add veteran talent in the off season like a Kris Humphries, CJ Miles, Thabo Sefolosha; guys that wouldn't cost much but can upgrade the roster? Or does the cap situation not allow it?

Maybe it was karma that this season has went the way it has when we signed this guy (who undoubtedly was not an NBA player who could help us at all) just to entice his brother to sign with us (a contract by the way that wasn't remotely offered by ANY other team apparently) over far more deserving players.


Just disgraceful to me.

If I were Adam Silver, I would use this type of incident to prove that there was some type of "deal" with JR involving a roster spot for his brother. Which could theoretically cause the Knicks FO to take a gentle suggestion from the league concerning "cleaning up" the FO. But, I am sure if that happened, GG would be tossed under the bus as if it was his idea, and that is why Dolan canned him.

@Frank Gebel  Bringing back JR for 3 years was the first of many terrible decisions.  Just thinking about the fact they also had to pay his talentless brother 500k actually makes me angry.  If ever the league needed to step in and take an active role in restoring one of its signature franchises, its now.

They can if the players accept the vets min.

I doubt Sefolosha would go from a winning situation like OKC into the mess the Knicks are.
Ronnie Brewer tried that last year, and look how it turned down.

Humphries will get paid more than we can give him too.

Chris Smith DOES suck, and he sucked in college too, which is why no one drafted him......... He probly continued sucking in the development league the same way he sucked in Summer League.........

@VerySilentJay @Mets0987Yep this kid has Mickadees written all over him. I just hopes he doesn't f##k up the fries when I go thru the drive-thru.  Make sure they give him enough grease time.

@MeloStat301 @rgm891  Lmaoooo.  Bringing back JVG would make me feel optimistic about this team again.  The coach we end up hiring this summer will be the biggest thing I am personally looking forward too.  Hopefully Mills is out as GM also.


Chris Smith will be back at our Summer league team knowing the Knicks.

@Biggie @XpectTheWorst 

LOL  Yo Biggie, you blaming your poor poor predictions on having some others doing it too? 

No worries, you still can be my wing man for the accounting job if I get that Knicks GM gig. lol

Over the years I've come accustomed to knowing that like Chandler on offense, when it come to your b-ball knowledge, do expect much.
