Keith Smart Rumors

The Miami Heat have granted permission to the Memphis Grizzlies to interview assistant coach Keith Smart for a position on the staff of former Heat assistant David Fizdale. The Heat confirmed Thursday they have been contacted by Memphis since Fizdale took over as coach last week regarding Smart, who was added to Erik Spoelstra’s staff in 2014 on the recommendation of Fizdale. Fizdale and Smart previously had coached together with the Golden State Warriors.
In order to drop his chances of the cancer returning to 1-in-500, Smart took part in 30 radiation treatments in San Francisco that began on Feb. 17, with weekends off, and ended Tuesday. His visit with the Heat on Friday was his first game since he attended a home contest Jan. 19 against the Milwaukee Bucks. “It’s been an interesting ride,” Smart told ESPN’s The Undefeated. “I have a unique experience of understanding [cancer] now.”
