J-Smith and Rondo dream about playing together. Smith: "We tell each other (how) surreal that would be, for us to be able to reconnect again
Smith on Rondo cont. "...but with the different free agencies that we both have, it could be far-fetched. But it could be possible too."
Josh Smith on Rondo reunion: "We always tell each other how surreal a moment that would be to reconnect in that realm…”
