Nets Sign Joe Smith

Marc Spears tweeted early Friday that veteran Joe Smith "is expected to take a physical with New Jersey Nets on Friday & sign a contract." Smith, the No. 1 draft pick in 1995, was signed late Friday to a fully guaranteed one-year vets minimum deal. He averaged 3.0 points in 9.3 minutes per game with the Hawks last season.

With the addition, the Nets have 15 players under contract, 13 fully guaranteed and two others with partial guarantees. The Nets are expected to announce training camp invites next week as well, but will only bring in "a couple of guys", according to a team insider.
