it's so obvious what the knicks did that their attempts to try and justify it were like a poor sitcom script
from espn article
Chris Smith signed a nonguaranteed contract worth $490,180. According to league sources with knowledge of the contract, his deal became fully guaranteed once he made the roster.
Smith has been inactive for the Knicks' first seven games. He is expected to play the majority of the season in the D-League with the Knicks' affiliate, the Erie BayHawks.
His inclusion on the roster has affected recent personnel decisions.
The Knicks decided recently that they would not add a big man to help fill the void left by injured center Tyson Chandler, who is out four to six weeks with a fractured right fibula.
