After his college career the 6' 10", 230 lb power forward was selected third overall in the 1988 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers but was immediately traded to the Los Angeles Clippers. After four years with the Clippers where he was among the team's top scorers and rebounders, he was traded to the New York Knicks with Doc Rivers and Bo Kimble for point guard Mark Jackson. Smith was expected to fill the hole at small forward left by Xavier McDaniel after the Knicks failed to re-sign him after their successful 1991-92 season, a role that Smith struggled in as he was primarily a power forward (a role which Charles Oakley had already filled). As Smith's stats declined, he was traded to the San Antonio Spurs for J.R. Reid before retiring in 1997 due to knee injuries.
