Nets Call Up Armor's Jerry Smith

New Jersey Nets

With a roster opening created by the 2-for-1 Gerald Wallace trade, the Nets have called up D-League Player of the Month Jerry Smith from Springfield. Smith, a 6'2" combo guard out of Louisville, has been generally regarded as the league's top prospect since Gerald Green was called up by the Nets from the L.A. Defenders.

Smith, 24, played with the Nets in training camp. He's averaging 19.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.2 assists in 32 games for the Armor. Smith was named D-League Player of the Month for February and Player of the Week for the first week of that month. In February, he led Springfield to a perfect 8-0 record, averaging 22.1 points, 5.9 rebounds and 5.0 assists. He was chosen to the D-League All-Star Team.

Smith is the fifth D-Leaguer called up by the Nets this year, following Dennis Horner, Larry Owens, Andre Emmett and Green. In response to the call-up, Smith tweeted, "So blessed to have this opportunity!!! Thank you lord I know it's all your work! #GoNets!"
