Report: Knicks Still Want J.R. Smith But Not His Brother Chris Smith

by Glenn Erby | Posted on Monday, May 27th, 2013


Last week it was reported that J.R. Smith had quietly agreed to re-sign with the New York Knicks at a price of $5 million per season.

Reports suggest that a part of that deal was the Knicks doing Smith a small favor by also keeping his younger brother and former Louisville guard Chris Smith on the roster.

ESPN New York is now reporting that such a deal in not the case, and even though they do want J.R. back, they have no interest in Chris Smith.

One source said¬†Chris Smith, J.R.’s younger brother, will not be considered.

“Chris is not an NBA player — not even close,” the source said. “He will never play for them.”

The Knicks are limited in what they can do in free agency, and do have a need for a point guard, I’m just not sure it will be young Chris Smith.
