The Seattle Sonics have signed former Chicago King star Leon Smith for the remainder of the NBA season. Smith had yet another standout season in the Continental Basketball Association (CBA).

Smith, a 6-10 power forward, went straight from Chicago King High School to the NBA before a series of events led him to be released. Smith was a first round draft pick of the San Antonio Spurs before being traded on draft day to the Dallas Mavericks. He is a fierce rebounder who could ultimately end up back in the NBA next year.
