The 6-5, 200-pound forward from Western Kentucky averaged 4.9 points per game after arriving via a trade that sent guard Stan McKenzie to Houston.

Smith, who was born in Princeton, Ky., and drafted by both the ABA Kentucky Colonels and NBA Bucks (fourth round), made 47.3 percent of his field-goal attempts for Portland.
