Guys get ready to see brothers in action J.R Smith will be joined by his younger brother Chris Smith playing for New York Knicks but what is important here is both these players play as Guard so are they actually going to replace each other. This remains to be seen yet.
According to sources the deal was closed and the details were not released by Knicks just confirming that they have signed free-agent guard Chris Smith. Chris was playing for Louisville and also played for Cardinals during his college career. He has a impressive college stats that averaged at 9.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists.
Chris Smith is relatively shorter than his big brother J.R Smith who is 6 foot 6 inches while Chris is 6 foot 2 inches but what is interesting and common among these two is their playing position. Both players has played as guard whether shooting guard or point guard during most of their career. Although Chris will be at added advantage because he is young and full of energy and also wanted to prove himself so he will be working really hard to get the position in New York Knicks playing five.
