3. Ish Smith
Over the course of his 13-year career, Ish Smith has played for a grand total of 13 teams. No player in NBA history has ever made an appearance on as many teams in a career as Smith. By definition, he is the biggest career journeyman the NBA has ever seen.
Smith has played for the Rockets, Grizzlies, Warriors, Magic, Bucks, Suns, Thunder, 76ers, Pelicans, Pistons, Wizards, Hornets, and Nuggets since his pro debut in 2010. Why not add a 14th team in the Timberwolves?
No, Ish Smith would likely not sniff Minnesota’s rotation. With all the talent the Wolves have in the backcourt, it would be extremely hard for Smith to find any legitimate playing time. But that does not mean it would not be worth it to have him around as the team navigates its season.
When it comes to seasoned veterans, you can never have too many in a locker room. If they are truly looking to contend for a championship, the Timberwolves would be far better served giving their final roster spot to a playoff-tested leader like Smith than to waste it on a struggling young prospect that is on his way out of the league.
