Articles about Jamar Smith

September 28, 2010

The infamous Smith played for the Timberwolves in summer league, at which time I had written this about him:

Smith - the former Illinois guard who was suspended for a year and a half after driving into a tree while drunk and fleeing the scene, leaving his teammate for dead, and who was then kicked out of the program after being caught underage drinking again and violating his probation - got a second chance at Division 2 Southern Indiana. He averaged 21.6ppg, 4.1rpg and 4.6apg there last year - all while playing with an electronic ankle bracelet - and earned an invite to the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament last month. However, he averaged only 5.6 points in 3 games there. Nothing about his resumé suggests the NBA is in his short or long term futures.

But by being here, Smith can now be assigned to Boston's D-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws, upon his inevitable arrival there. There's a method to it all.
