Josh Smith Signs With Rockets?

Since the Detroit Pistons decided to part ways with Forward Josh Smith earlier this week, we have all been waiting to see where he will land next. And we may have gotten our answer!

After the announcement of the release of Smith, a few teams were biting at the opportunity to pick up the fresh free agent as an off-the-bench type player or even as a rebound specialist on their starting five. Amongst the teams were the Kings, Clippers, and Mavericks to name a few. But, word is, from Yahoo! Sports reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, Josh has reportedly decided to sign with the Houston Rockets.

Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted the following statement Christmas Eve:

Josh Smith has committed to signing with the Houston Rockets, league sources tell Yahoo Sports. He clears waivers at 5 PM today.

When asked about reuniting with his former AAU teammate out of Atlanta, Dwight Howard, Josh told Fox26 Sports this:

It’s an exciting time for me,” Smith said in an interview with FOX26 Sports. “Being able to be reunited with a good friend and one of the best teammates I ever played with, I think we can definitely do something special.

“Playing beside the best two-guard in the game right now in James Harden, what more can you ask for.”

“I think I can add to their toughness,” Smith said. “I think I can add to their versatility at the four position, being able to pass the basketball and score the ball down low. Just add another basketball IQ, which will help when we make it to the postseason.”
