Then the former U of L star Smith got to work himself, called up again from the Development League to record his first NBA points in a New Orleans Pelicans jersey. Playing in a 114-88 home loss to the Portland Trailblazers, Smith made his first shot on a fourth quarter 3-pointer and went on to finish with 5 points, 2 rebounds and 3 turnovers in a career-high 15 minutes. The Pelicans' recall of Smith, who has been up and down from the NBA to the Mad Antz since originally going to Fort Wayne on Dec. 5, followed the release of guard Gal Mekel.

Eric Pincus: The D-Fenders have waived NBA vet Jamario Moon - added instead Aflred Aboya - formerly of UCLA Twitter @EricPincus

Miller already has the looks of an NBA rotation player and his improving play with the Bighorns is just adding more pudding to the bowl. If NBA teams hold off on signing him to a deal until the 10-day contract's begin on January 5, then he will be an immediate candidate for a 10-day. His path back to the NBA might be shorter than he imagined when he was picked up by Reno, but the system he's playing in is exposing his talents on the offensive end, the exact thing that gets NBA player called up to the League. Ridiculous Upside
