Daily Link: Joe Smith In the Fold

With the recent release of Sean May due to an injury, it looks like the Nets are still seeking a veteran PF for the bench and may be turning to Joe Smith, according to Yahoo’s Marc Spears via Twitter.

Vet free agent big man Joe Smith is expected to take a physical with New Jersey Nets on Friday & sign a contract, a source tells Y! Sports.

Smith has been one of the more solid backup big men in the league for years though he looked like he was finally showing his age the last two season. We’ll see how the Nets plan to use him, though I’m guessing it’s to give Derrick Favors another veteran buddy to practice with.
