Kevin Smith signs with the Sydney Kings

The Sydney Kings have signed on the American born Kevin Smith. Kevin is coming to the NBL as a local player as he became naturalised during his time playing in the New Zealand NBL playing for the Auckland Pirates, Harbour Heat and the Bay Hawks. At 32 Kevin still is looking very athletic and standing at 6'6" will a good back up for James Harvey and can possibly swing to the forward position when required. During the 2012 NZ NBL season Kevin Smith played for the Harbour Heat and averaged 16.3 points, 4.7 robounds, 1.3 assists and 1 steal per game. Check his game below. But with an experienced, athletic 6 foot 6 player who can shoot it is a decent signing for Shane Heal. However looking at the line up James Harvey, Ian Crosswhite, Aaron Bruce, Ben Madgen, Graeme Dann, Luke Martin, Tom Garlepp and Corin Henry (import). They are going to need a good second import to make them a real title contender next season.
