There's been some lobbying recently on NetsDaily for the team to sign Craig Smith, the 6'7" power forward who played last year for the Clippers ...It didn't work.
Last Wednesday, Smith tweeted his thanks to Nets fans for all their tweets urging him to come to New Jersey.
"I would love to so we will see what happen," he wrote. In a separate tweet later Wednesday, Smith reported he "had some (meetings) but I think more should come soon". The "more" turned out to be a new deal with the Clippers, announced Monday.
The 26-year-old Boston College product, who's also played for Minnesota, averaged 6.5 pgg and 4.3 rpg in nearly 19 minutes for the Clippers last season.
