CHRIS SMITH, EARL'S LITTLE BROTHER.
(AP) -- New York has signed free-agent guard Chris Smith, the younger brother of Knicks guard J.R. Smith. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.
The 6-foot-2 Smith averaged 9.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists in two seasons under RICK pITino. The Cardinals made the Final Four last season, Smith’s senior year.
The Scriptology of this deal was mentioned in a previous Fanatics thread. To reiterate IT...was for JR to resign on the cheap. Fifty-Fifty is now 70-30. And yes, JR
Smith is our STARTING SHOOTING guard. Chris is our 4TH PG. Former Knicks head coach PITino could not be happier. It also tells us who may step in if Woodson can't get the Job done!
pITino became head coach of the New York Knicks in 1987. The year before he arrived, the team had won only 24 games. In just two years, pITino led the Knicks to their first division title in nearly twenty years. pITino left that year after posting a 52-30 record and GM AL Bianchi being a Jackass by trying to Micro-manage pITino.
