Unlikely he ends up on the opening day roster, but at least he is getting an opportunity before heading down to the D League.
Chris Smith, the younger brother of guard J.R. Smith, will join the Knicks.
His agent, Marc Cornstein, wouldn’t disclose the terms of the agreement — it’s likely non-guaranteed — but he called the opportunity “a dream come true for Chris.”
“We are very excited about him joining the Knicks and look forward to him getting a real opportunity to contribute,” Cornstein told ESPNNewYork.com.
Just a matter of time before JR Smith’s sister gets a deal in the NFL.
