The season of Dennis Smith Jr. has certainly not been exalted, as for all the Knicks. Dennis Smith Jr. went through a complicated season, first because of injuries and then because of his family problems.
He stayed out for two weeks, away from the Knicks. Upon his return, Smith Jr. failed to resume the right minute, both with David Fizdale, and then with Mike Miller.
It appeared that Smith Jr. had to leave the Knicks, but such was not. But a few days before the deadline, Steve Mills was removed as team president. This probably prevented Smith Jr’s trade.
Perhaps a change may be the best thing for him. He probably is not best suited to the Knicks and even the Knicks are not suitable for him.
