Ish Smith Rumors
Teams around the league began trimming their rosters for the regular season last week but the Wizards aren’t expected to make their cuts until after their current road trip, which concludes in Montreal on Friday, because their roster is so depleted with injuries. Washington already has 15 players with guaranteed contracts, so barring a last-minute change, the five non-guaranteed training camp invitees — Toure’ Murry, Ish Smith, Josh Harrellson, Jaleel Roberts and Jaron Johnson — will be released.
“People looked at me like I was crazy,” Smith said of his decision to sign a non-guaranteed contract with the Rockets. “A lot of guys came up to me, or through texts and calls, asking the same question: ‘Man, why didn’t you go anywhere else?’ I just felt like it was a good fit here.”
