Chris Smith, the less known of the Smith brothers in the New York Knicks training camp (J.R. Smith), was always a real longshot to make the roster.

Now, you can throw the chances out the window with this news from Frank Isola of the New York Daily News.

Even if Chris is healthy on the short end of that timeline, he’s going to be spending this season in the D-League trying to earn his way back to a camp next year. Again, this doesn’t really change the Knicks plans at all, but you hate to see a guy miss out on his chance for something like this.

    Damn, that sucks, I’ve always wanted a brother tandom in the NBA. There’s been a lot of brothers, from Horace and Harvey Grant to Robin and Brook Lopez and everywhere in between, but never together. The Gasol boys came close if the Lakers wouldn’t have tossed late 2nd rounder Marc in the Pau trade as “filler” at the time.

    This pretty much seals his fate he won’t make the team. Weak. >:- /
