Latest News
Feb. 12 9:28 PM PT10:28 PM MT11:28 PM CT12:28 AM ET5:28 GMT13:28 10:28 PM MST12:28 AM EST9:28 UAE06:280:28 ET11:28 PM CT3:28 - Smith was effective again, scoring 21 points and matching a season high with 13 rebounds in Wednesday's loss to the Clippers.
Analysis: Smith may be coming into his own with Houston, averaging 17.8 points on 51.9 percent shooting with 8.5 rebounds a game over his last four contests.
Feb. 6 8:56 PM PT9:56 PM MT10:56 PM CT11:56 PM ET4:56 GMT12:56 9:56 PM MST11:56 PM EST8:56 UAE05:5623:56 ET10:56 PM CT2:56 - Smith nearly had a triple-double Friday, though it would have been a lame one.
Analysis: Smith had 14 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists. It's proof that he has the talent to do it all yet rarely has the focus to do enough of it and that's lame.
Jan. 5 8:37 PM PT9:37 PM MT10:37 PM CT11:37 PM ET4:37 GMT12:37 9:37 PM MST11:37 PM EST8:37 UAE05:3723:37 ET10:37 PM CT2:37 - Smith led the Rockets with 21 points Monday.
Analysis: Smith, in terms of statistics, may currently be the NBA's most inconsistent player. He followed up his 21-point debut with Houston on Dec. 26 with 5.2 points per his next four games.
Dec. 29 8:48 PM PT9:48 PM MT10:48 PM CT11:48 PM ET4:48 GMT12:48 9:48 PM MST11:48 PM EST8:48 UAE05:4823:48 ET10:48 PM CT2:48 - Smith had his second straight poor outing for the Rockets, finishing with just three points on 1-of-6 shooting in Monday's loss to Washington.
Analysis: Smith has totaled eight points and eight turnovers while missing 10 of 13 shots in his two starts with the Rockets.
Dec. 28 2:40 PM PT3:40 PM MT4:40 PM CT5:40 PM ET22:40 GMT6:40 3:40 PM MST5:40 PM EST2:40 UAE (+1)23:4017:40 ET4:40 PM CT20:40 - Smith is set to make his first start with the Houston Rockets on Sunday in their game against the injury-depleted San Antonio Spurs.
Analysis: Smith had 21 points, eight rebounds and three assists in his debut with Houston on Friday, just hours after signing with the team as a free agent. He averaged 13.1 points and 7.2 rebounds in 28 games with Detroit before being released by the Pistons a week ago. ''We had practice yesterday, I think he's picked up enough of what we're doing,'' Houston coach Kevin McHale said.
Dec. 26 9:01 AM PT10:01 AM MT11:01 AM CT12:01 PM ET17:01 GMT1:01 10:01 AM MST12:01 PM EST21:01 UAE18:0112:01 ET11:01 AM CT15:01 - Smith has signed with the Houston Rockets following his release this week by the Detroit Pistons. General manager Daryl Morey announced the signing of the small forward Friday. The move reunites Smith with AAU teammate and longtime friend Dwight Howard, who is in his second season in Houston.
Analysis: Smith was let go by the Pistons after signing a four-year, $54 million contract in July 2013. He has averaged 15.4 points and 7.8 rebounds during his 11-year career. He averaged 13.1 points and 7.2 rebounds in 28 games this season.
Dec. 26 7:09 PM PT8:09 PM MT9:09 PM CT10:09 PM ET3:09 GMT11:09 8:09 PM MST10:09 PM EST7:09 UAE (+1)04:0922:09 ET9:09 PM CT1:09 - Smith came off the bench to finish with 21 points and eight rebounds in a win at Memphis in his Houston debut.
Analysis: Smith had averaged 9.5 points in his final four games with Detroit. He's certainly on his way to greater value in Houston.
Dec. 24 11:47 AM PT12:47 PM MT1:47 PM CT2:47 PM ET19:47 GMT3:47 12:47 PM MST2:47 PM EST23:47 UAE20:4714:47 ET1:47 PM CT17:47 - A person with knowledge of the decision says Josh Smith will join the Houston Rockets following his release by the Detroit Pistons.
Analysis: Smith was let go by the Pistons this week after signing a four-year, $54 million contract with them in July 2013. The small forward has averaged 15.4 points and 7.8 rebounds during his 11-year career. He averaged 13.1 points and 7.2 rebounds in 28 games this season.
Dec. 22 8:42 AM PT9:42 AM MT10:42 AM CT11:42 AM ET16:42 GMT0:42 9:42 AM MST11:42 AM EST20:42 UAE17:4211:42 ET10:42 AM CT14:42 - The Detroit Pistons have waived Smith, less than two years after signing him to a lucrative free-agent contract.
Analysis: The Pistons are 5-23 and coach and team president Stan Van Gundy says the club wants to develop younger players. He says he felt it best to give the 29-year-old Smith his freedom to go elsewhere. Smith signed a $54 million, four-year deal with the Pistons before last season, but he shot only 42 percent from the field in 2013-14. This season, Smith is at 39 percent.
Dec. 18 10:22 PM PT11:22 PM MT12:22 AM CT1:22 AM ET6:22 GMT14:22 11:22 PM MST1:22 AM EST10:22 UAE07:221:22 ET12:22 AM CT4:22 - Smith took just four field goals Wednesday.
Analysis: He finished with just seven points and two rebounds in Detroit's loss to Dallas, and his four field goal attempts were his lowest since April 13, 2011.
Nov. 25 8:19 PM PT9:19 PM MT10:19 PM CT11:19 PM ET4:19 GMT12:19 9:19 PM MST11:19 PM EST8:19 UAE05:1923:19 ET10:19 PM CT2:19 - Smith nearly had a triple-double for Detroit on Tuesday night.
Analysis: Smith had 11 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists so it really wasn't that impressive.
Nov. 10 7:11 PM PT8:11 PM MT9:11 PM CT10:11 PM ET3:11 GMT11:11 8:11 PM MST10:11 PM EST7:11 UAE (+1)04:1122:11 ET9:11 PM CT1:11 - Smith had 19 points and 11 rebounds Monday.
