Thunder to Pursue Guard Nolan Smith?
Sources close to (Nolan) Smith say there will be a host of teams poised to offer him a second chance, with the Chicago Bulls, Atlanta Hawks and Oklahoma City Thunder likely be the most aggressive pursuers.
While Smith wasn’t willing to discuss his interest in other teams, Oklahoma City, in particular, certainly would be an intriguing option for the 6-foot-2 combo guard. For starters, the franchise’s reputation for developing young talent is second only to the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA. And more importantly, Smith has a deep, lifelong connection with Thunder coach Scott Brooks.
