Former Portland Trail Blazers guard Dennis Smith Jr. has said yes to a one-year contract with the Charlotte Hornets, and this will mark Smith Jr.’s fifth team since stepping foot in the league as the ninth overall pick in 2017. Smith Jr. has hit the 37 contests mark as a Trail Blazer last season before a experiencing a partial injury in his right ulnar collateral ligament (UCL). the incident sidelined him right before the All-Star break. He was thereupon waived by the team briefly after.
Finally, Smith Jr. was may not have been a significant part of Portland’s backcourt, but he did show his potential in four starts, averaging 15.8 points and 6.5 assists in those games. He is stilll young and this 24 years old is worthy of each NBA contract he lands. He is going to watch his career bounce-back in a new arena.
