  • The Washington Wizards and Denver Nuggets made a trade right before NBA free agency.
  • The deal sends Will Barton and Monte Morris to Washington for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Ish Smith.
  • If Smith plays one game for Denver, he will set an unreal NBA record for playing with 13 teams.

The Washington Wizards and Denver Nuggets pulled off a small trade right before the start of free agency. The deal sent Monte Morris and Will Barton to the Washington Wizards, reuniting childhood friends Kyle Kuzma and Morris in an incredible story. The Nuggets received Ish Smith and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, giving Denver some much-needed depth.

But, perhaps the bigger story is regarding new Nuggets PG Ish Smith, who is one game away from setting an unreal NBA record.

That’s right; Smith is about to be playing for his 13th NBA team.

New Nuggets PG Ish Smith Is A Well-Traveled NBA Player

Smith has been around the NBA for a long time and with many teams. Here are the teams he has played for, in order of first to most recent:

  • Houston Rockets
  • Memphis Grizzlies
  • Golden State Warriors
  • Orlando Magic
  • Milwaukee Bucks
  • Phoenix Suns
  • Oklahoma City Thunder
  • Philadelphia 76ers
  • New Orleans Pelicans
  • Detroit Pistons
  • Washington Wizards
  • Charlotte Hornets
  • Denver Nuggets

That is nearly HALF the NBA teams, and Smith came into the league back in 2010. So, in a dozen years, he will now play for his 13th team, including multiple stops in Philadelphia and Washington.

Smith’s moving history is one of the more incredible in all sports, and at least he will have an NBA record that might never be broken.
