Golden State just announce it has waived PG Ish Smith.
The Warriors need to clear up a roster spot. They were at the maximum of 15 and, with the injury to center Kwame Brown, needed to add another big man.
Smith was the obvious choice, as Golden State has three point guards ahead of him: Stephen Curry, Charles Jenkins and Nate Robinson (not to mention part-time point guard) Monta Ellis.
Smith, 23, appeared in six games, averaging 5.4 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 12.6 minutes. He even started once and looked pretty good.
The worst part about Smith being waived? It was right before he got the chance to play in his hometown. The Charlotte native now won’t be on the team for Saturday’s game at the Bobcats.
