McHale Removes Josh Smith From Starting Lineup



The Rockets, ever opportunistic, chose to add (Josh) Smith to their roster for a little more than $2 million this season.

Smith scored 21 points and grabbed eight rebounds in his Houston debut, which resulted in a win over the Memphis Grizzlies. He was then given a spot in his new team’s starting lineup, but after producing little there in his last four games, Rockets head coach Kevin McHale sent him back to the bench.

In five games with the Rockets, Smith has averaged career lows in points (8.4) and rebounds (5.2), while shooting 34.6 percent from the field, and 12.5 percent from three-point distance. Houston is just 2-3 since adding Smith to the roster.
