Hornets Hoping J.R. Smith Participates In Summer League

The Times-Picayune - If J.R. Smith is still a Hornet by the time it rolls around, New Orleans is hoping that he, along with Brandon Bass, Kirk Snyder, Marcus Fizer and Linton Johnson, he will play for the summer league team in July in Las Vegas.

"And if not for all of it, at least for portions," Bower said. "We won't force anybody, obviously, but we are encouraged with their willingness to prepare and improve. It's a great midsummer checkup."

The Hornets could trade Smith, who will enter his third season this fall, before July. Smith clashed with Scott during the season and lost his starting job.

According to The Times-Picayune, Smith has participated in workouts in Houston with John Lucas, a former NBA player and coach. Smith is working out with other NBA players such as Steve Francis and Mike James. And according to Smith's father, Earl, the 6-foot-6 shooting guard now is at 225 pounds with 1 percent body fat.

The Hornets could wait until after the summer league to trade Smith -- if they trade him at all -- so he can showcase his abilities for opposing scouts.

1 percent Bodyfat? I used to work as a Personal trainer and it is virtually impossible to have 1% bodyfat, even the Olympic marathoners don't have 1 percent bodyfat. That's a crock of sh*t.

There comes a point where losing fat is no longer beneficial, as it's essencial for life.

2% to 4% body fat is the essencial threshold, with athletes ranging between 6% to 13%.

Well, it's his DAD . Don't expect truthful scouting reports from close family.

yes, the problem is that these 5% are all in the same spot, between his ears.
