Pelicans' Javonte Smart: Signs with New Orleans
Smart signed with the Pelicans on Monday.

Javonte Smart: Let go by Miami
Smart was waived by the Heat on Saturday, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.
Smart spent a good portion of the 2021-22 season in the G League and was unable to stand out during Summer League, so he'll now look to play elsewhere after Miami released him from his two-way contract.

Heat's Javonte Smart: Scores 20 points off bench

Smart played 44 minutes back in December, but he had barely seen the court since then. He took advantage of having a bigger role since Miami was resting several regulars in the season finale, but he's not expected to be a factor come playoff time. He ended the regular season with averages of 3.0 points and 1.4 rebounds per game in just 17 appearances with the Heat and Bucks.... See More ... See Less
