Smith agreed to a contract Friday with Istanbul BSB of the Turkish Basketball Super League, Chris Reichert of Upside Motor reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith appeared in 18 games with the Timberwolves last season, averaging 2.4 points and 2.3 rebounds in 10.7 minutes per game. The team waived him earlier in the offseason, and after he failed to land a guaranteed contract from an NBA team, he'll take his talents to Turkey in an attempt to keep his career going.

Smith was waived by the Timberwolves on Thursday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith latched on with the Timberwolves in the middle of March after a pair of 10-day contracts, eventually inking a multi-year deal with the team. Smith ended up playing in 18 games, posting averages of 2.4 points and 2.3 rebounds over 11 minutes per outing. At just 25 years old, the 6-foot-10 big man still has some potential to grow into a more well-rounded player, so a team looking for some frontcourt help may be inclined to give him a look. At the very least, Smith should get a training camp invite with a chance to make a regular season roster.

Smith (coach's decision) didn't see the court in Tuesday's 124-117 overtime victory over the Warriors.

EDGE Analysis

It appears Smith has been at least temporarily dropped from coach Sam Mitchell's rotation, as this was the second game in a row in which he didn't see the floor. Though starting power forward Gorgui Dieng has seen his minutes cut down in the previous four games, it appears Mitchell has been content running more small-ball or floor-stretching lineups, as Nemanja Bjelica and Shabazz Muhammad have been the primary beneficiaries of added court time on the second unit. It may take an injury to one of the Wolves' healthy frontcourt options for Smith to reemerge as a rotation regular.

Smith signed with the Timberwolves for the rest of the season Tuesday, Kent Young blood of the Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith hasn't seen much extended run since signing his first of two 10-day deals at the beginning of the month, but Minnesota has apparently liked what it's seen enough to keep Smith around for the remainder of the year. The other option would have been to release Smith, as players are only allowed to sign two consecutive 10-day contracts.

Smith will sign another 10-day contract with the Timberwolves, Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith's first 10-day deal is set to expire over the weekend, but the Wolves will bring back the forward for at least another week-and-a-half. After this second contract expires, the Wolves will either have to release Smith or sign him for the remainder of the season.

Smith (toe) will be available for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

EDGE Analysis

Smith came down with an infection in his toe recently but it doesn't appear that he'll be missing any time off the court despite the injury scare. Although, the reserve player has averaged just 12 minutes per game since joining the Timberwolves on a 10-day contract and won't be expected to have a significant workload Tuesday either.

Smith is considered questionable for Tuesday's game against the Spurs due to a toe infection, Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Smith's a new addition to the Timberwolves most recent injury report, so the severity of his toe infection is a bit unclear, while his status for Tuesday won't be known until closer to tip off. If Smith is unable to play, Minnesota's frontcourt will be thin, with Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng taking on large roles.
