Great article on Russ Smith


"When I got into these workouts, and they wanted me to go by my man every time, I went by my man every time," he started. "You want me to make 60 percent of my shots, 70 percent of my shots? I made 60 or 70 percent of my shots. You want me to finish at the rim? I finish over the rim. "You want me to get guys involved with assists? I get guys involved with assists. You want me to defend and not let people in the lane? I defend and I don't let people in the lane. What more do you want me to do?"


"I got the call (from Pelicans GM Dell Demps) that I was going, and I was like, 'Wow, I feel almost at home.' When we interviewed, I felt like I was talking to my dad, (Pitino), my friends or all my former coaches. It was very homely. I'm glad to be a part of that organization. I'm ready to work."

Can't wait to see this guy play!

He was a blast to watch this past season. Pumped to see him in a NOLA uni.

He shot 39% from 3pt range (70/181) last year.

Excited that he could possibly be an outside threat and an average PG when the bench come on (similar to what Patty Mills does for SA).

I'm excited to begin the Smith era of backup basketball

For the very limited ammunition we had in the draft, the Pelicans nailed it.
