Ex-Knick Chris Smith translates to Judaism, signs understanding in Israel

Chris Smith, who quickly played for the Knicks as a teammate of older hermit J.R. Smith, has converted to Judaism and has sealed a three-year understanding with Ironi Nahariya of the Israeli first division.

The younger Smith, now 30, seemed in two games (with no points) for the Knicks in 2013 after personification collegiately at Manhattan and Louisville.

His understanding with Ironi Nahariya was first reported by basketball author David Pick and was after reliable by ESPN. Smith’s agent Daniel Hazan also told ESPN that he assisted Smith by the eremite acclimatisation process.

Smith also seemed in one diversion for the Israeli bar Hapoel Galil Elyon in 2016.
