LEON SMITH signed for the summer League

Postby #1_Kobe_fan on Thu Jul 03, 2003 1:39 am

Leon Smith, who has had difficulty fitting into several leagues since he was drafted out of Chicago's Martin Luther King High four years ago, will play for the Lakers' entry in the L.A. Pro Summer League at the Pyramid in Long Beach.

The team, coached by Kurt Rambis, opens its season Sunday against the Canadian national team.

Smith, who attempted suicide two weeks into the 1999-2000 season while with the Dallas Mavericks, played 14 games for the Atlanta Hawks two seasons ago. In the last year, the 6-foot-10 forward has played for the Globetrotters, in the USBL, the CBA and in Puerto Rico.

Smith is nothing more than a space filler in the Summer League roster. Mentally, he's a reck. Also, with the Lakers drafting Cook and a PF free agent signing soon to occur, Smith will not even make it to the practice team. I'll take Mark Madsen over this guy anyday.
