Josh Smith Leaves Houston to Join Clippers
Mr. Smith is going to Los Angeles. The trigger-happy small forward jumped ship from the Houston Rockets after just 55 games, reportedly signing a veteran’s minimum salary. Ironically, it was Smith’s contributions that helped Houston stage a dramatic comeback after falling behind 3 games to 1 to bounce the Clippers from last year’s conference semifinals. It’s been a dramatic but potent off-season for Los Angeles, who re-signed center DeAndre Jordan and netted Paul Pierce to piece together a group of championship worthy contenders.
