Dec. 27 6:00 PM PT7:00 PM MT8:00 PM CT9:00 PM ET2:00 GMT10:00 7:00 PM MST9:00 PM EST6:00 UAE (+1)03:0021:00 ET8:00 PM CT0:00 - Smith turned in a horrific fantasy effort in a 109-92 loss at Orlando on Friday night.

Dec. 23 8:45 PM PT9:45 PM MT10:45 PM CT11:45 PM ET4:45 GMT12:45 9:45 PM MST11:45 PM EST8:45 UAE05:4523:45 ET10:45 PM CT2:45 - Smith had 25 points in Monday's 115-92 win at Cleveland.

Analysis: Smith's field-goal percentage has suffered this season with a career-low 40.3 percent mark - perhaps playing alongside Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe has forced him away from the basket - but Sunday's performance certainly made fantasy owners happy. Still, it was just the seventh time in 25 games this season that he's shot 50.0 percent or better.
Dec. 2 10:01 PM PT11:01 PM MT12:01 AM CT1:01 AM ET6:01 GMT14:01 11:01 PM MST1:01 AM EST10:01 UAE07:011:01 ET12:01 AM CT4:01 - Smith scored 20 and matched a season-high by hitting three 3-pointers on five attempts in Sunday's win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: All of Smith's numbers are down in his first year in Detroit, perhaps most concerning being his career-low 40.8 field-goal percentage.
July 10 9:11 AM PT10:11 AM MT11:11 AM CT12:11 PM ET16:11 GMT0:11 9:11 AM MST11:11 AM EST20:11 UAE18:1112:11 ET11:11 AM CT15:11 - The Detroit Pistons have signed Smith to a $54 million, four-year contract. The Pistons announced the addition Wednesday.
Analysis: Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars calls Smith a two-way player. He says he looks forward to the forward blending his talent with the team's young nucleus. Detroit will likely start the 27-year-old Smith it its frontcourt with 23-year-old power forward Greg Monroe and center Andre Drummond, who turns 20 next month. The backcourt will include Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the No. 8 overall pick in the draft.
July 6 12:26 PM PT1:26 PM MT2:26 PM CT3:26 PM ET19:26 GMT3:26 12:26 PM MST2:26 PM EST23:26 UAE21:2615:26 ET2:26 PM CT18:26 - A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that the Detroit Pistons have agreed to a $54 million, four-year contract with free agent Josh Smith.
Analysis: The person spoke Saturday on the condition of anonymity because the agreement has not been announced. NBA rules prevent confirmation of moves until July 10, when Smith is expected to sign his deal.
