Two days away from the annual NBA Development League draft, the Mad Ants made a trade.
Tommy Smith, a 6-foot-10 forward who averaged 7.8 points and 4.9 rebounds for the Dakota Wizards last season, was acquired by the Mad Ants for the third round pick in Friday's draft.
Smith, who played at Arizona State, was drafted in the second round of the 2003 NBA draft by the Chicago Bulls. The 53rd pick overall, Smith averaged 11.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in 32 games with the Bulls. He later went on to play in the Philippines, Germany, Syria and China.
While Smith played for Dakota last season, the franchise has relocated to Santa Cruz.
The Mad Ants will have the first overall pick in Friday's draft.
