Smith, the 17th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft, spent most of his peak years with the Atlanta Hawks. He then signed a four-year deal with the Detroit Pistons in 2012, but was waived two years later. He then had brief stints with the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers, and New Orleans Pelicans.
Throughout his 13-year career, Smith averaged 14.5 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 3.1 assists.
Smith is the latest addition in the Big3’s star-studded draft pool, which already has the likes of Gilbert Arenas, Lamar Odom, Stromile Swift, Kendrick Perkins, and Johnson.
Josh Smith is a former slam dunk champion, and although he’s already 33 years old, he can still definitely posterize opponents with his ferocious throw downs.
Big3 will most likely add a couple more NBA veterans before their season begins sometime around June or July this year.
Some of the NBA vets who have committed to joining the Big3 this season are Eddie House, Shawne Williams, Shannon Brown, Steve Blake, Daniel Gibson, and Al Jefferson.
3-time Drew League MVP Franklin Session and Dusan Bulut, ranked first in the world in 3-on-3 basketball, will also partake in the third season of the Big3 League.
