OKBET NBA : Dennis Smith Jr. signs one-year deal with Charlotte Hornets



Dennis Smith Jr. – The point guard, who has five years of experience and is returning to his native state of North Carolina.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Charlotte Hornets and Dennis Smith Jr. have reached an agreement on a contract for one year.

Smith has spent his five years in the NBA playing for a total of five different teams. During the 2021-22 season, he played for Portland and appeared in 37 games, making four starts. Smith, who was born in Fayetteville, was selected ninth overall in the 2017 NBA Draft out of North Carolina State. He began his professional career with the Dallas Mavericks and played there for the first year and a half of his career before being dealt to the New York Knicks as part of the deal that sent Kristaps Porzingis to the Mavericks.

According to Rod Boone of The Observer, Smith’s one-year deal does not include a guarantee of any kind.

This is a low-risk decision that allows Charlotte’s front staff to assess what’s left in the tank for Smith, as Boone indicated in his tweet, and it’s a move that makes sense. The Charlotte Hornets have now signed five players to non-guaranteed contracts, bringing the total number of players on the roster up to 19. This leaves two guaranteed spots and one Two-Way slot left ahead of the start of training camp in just under a week.

There will be a maximum of one additional player signed to the Hornets roster during the preseason, and that will only happen if one of the Exhibit 10 players is released prior to the beginning of training camp. Smith is more likely to be able to handle the defensive assignments given to him by head coach Steve Clifford than the older, less athletic guards that are currently available on the market, and it’s always nice to give a shot to a native of the state of North Carolina. Personally, I think this signing makes sense.
