Smith deal called off

Posted By Jessica Camerato On February 18, 2009 @ 11:57 pm In General | 2 Comments

According to multiple reports, big man Joe Smith is heading back to the Oklahoma City Thunder [1]. Smith has been mentioned as a possible addition for the Boston Celtics [2] front court. On Tuesday he was traded to the New Orleans Hornets [3] as part of a deal for Tyson Chandler [4]. However Chandler, who has been sidelined with an ankle injury, did not pass the Thunder’s physical. This means the 6-10, 225 pound  Smith could be back on the market. Even though the Celtics are not expected to make any major moves [5], they do have a roster spot made available by the Sam Cassell trade. The NBA trade deadline is Thursday.
