Smith began the season with the New York Knicks under controversial circumstances as the younger brother of J.R. Smith.

Smith was averaging 8.1 points and 3.3 rebounds in 23 games with the BayHawks.

In an interview, Houston praised Smith’s work ethic and his family and said, “We see him as a player we want to develop and see potential in.”
Smith had changed his mind about having something to prove.

Toure Murry is an intriguing prospect. Even though NY is guard heavy at the moment, and lacking in “bigs” Murry screams defense and team play, all constants in coach Woodson’s philosophy. He is the kind of young player the...
The New York Knicks announced on Wednesday afternoon that they have signed former Louisville guard Chris Smith.
After graduating from Louisville in 2012, Smith went undrafted, but later joined the Knicks as a free agent, shortly after his older brother, J.R., resigned with the franchise. The only thing guaranteed for Smith in his contract was an invite to the training camp.

Haddadi over Tyler?
The 7-foot-2 Haddadi, according to the source, had been “in talks with the Knicks a bunch over the last few weeks.” But he wasn’t able to visit New York because he was busy in the Philippines participating in the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship, of which he was named MVP.
