Josh Smith's way back into the NBA could take him to The Big Easy.
The New Orleans Pelicans are reportedly working out a number of forwards to potentially fill the void left by the injured Solomon Hill, with Smith being one of those players, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski said on The Woj Pod.
Hill will be out of action for the next 6-8 months after surgery to repair a proximal hamstring tear in his left leg.
Smith recently competed overseas in the Chinese Basketball Association for the Sichuan Blue Whales, leaving the team in January after averaging a double-double of 18.7 points and 10.6 rebounds in 30.9 minutes.
Smith is only 31 years old, and was touted for his length, athleticism, and shot blocking during the heyday of his pro career.
