Josh Smith was very productive with the Houston Rockets and after a failed stint with the Clippers he is headed back after a trade.

Josh Smith is going back to the Houston Rockets. According to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski the Los Angeles Clippers have traded Smith to the Rockets in exchange for the right to a foreign player and cash.

Smith was a lost soul last season with the Detroit Pistons before he was released and brought in by the Rockets. In Houston the former first round pick of the Atlanta Hawks was key in helping them go to the Western Conference finals. In 55 games he made seven starts and averaged 12 points and six rebounds per game. He averaged 13.5 points per game in the playoffs, where he made eight starts as the team battled injury. He was one of the most productive players on the team as well but he’s been miserable with the Clippers.

Smith signed with the Clippers as a free agent but in 32 games he’s made just one start but is averaging only 5.7 points and his inconsistent play has limited him to only 14.3 minutes per game.

But Houston figured out how to best utilize Smith last year and he worked well in his role in the fast-paced offense. The Rockets have had one of the top offenses in the league so far but Smith can be a great defensive player when he wants to be, and was at time last year for the Rockets.

Corey Johns

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
