Most NBA scouts consider Smith a D-League player and coach Mike Woodson admitted his brother J.R. Smith’s presence on the Knicks’ roster was a factor. New York Post

Chris Smith was playing with the Knicks’ D-League affiliate Erie until two weeks ago when the Knicks promoted him because of their point-guard crisis. Smith has already pocketed his $472,000 guarantee and they can still monitor him in Erie as an NBA free agent. “I think it’s going to be [Smith],’’ a person familiar with the Knicks thinking said. “That’s been the plan.” New York Post
