Sporting NewsJosh Smith’s introductory news conference as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers was largely forgettable except for this little nugget.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, the former Pistons bust explained how next year will be a financial challenge.
"At the end of the day, you know, I do have a family," he said. "So it is going to be a little harder on me this year. But I'm going to push through it, you know."
Smith will be paid a combined $6.9 million next season between what he’s owed from the Pistons and the $1.5 million contract he signed with the Clippers.
The Sentinel also notes Smith has made about $91 million so far in career NBA earnings.
