According to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports, Joe Smith is expected to take a physical and sign a contract with the New Jersey Nets on Friday
The former #1 pick appeared in 64 games for the Atlanta Hawks last season, and averaged 3.0 points and 2.5 rebounds per game in 9.3 minutes per game. 
The 35-year old Smith never lived up to his #1 overall pick billing, but he’s a solid rebounder and mid-range shooter, a savvy veteran, and a great locker-room presence. 
Smith has previously played for the Warriors, 76ers, Timberwolves, Pistons, Bucks, Nuggets, Bulls, Cavaliers, Thunder, and Hawks.

    Good pick up. Joe Smith is one of my favorite veterans in the league. The Nets are very young and they need some veterans to help mentor the young guys. He still has game too. He’s still has decent athleticism, strength and talent. Also the former no.1 overall pick can run the floor, defend, rebound and hit the midrange and 3 pt jump-shot. He’ll be a good mentor to Derrick Favors also. The Nets have alot of talent and could maybe sneak into the playoffs.
