Smith Official (Sky Sports Report)

For those that missed my tweet earlier today (the best way to keep up with this blog during the day while I'm at work where blogger is blocked), word out of England is that the Wizards have signed former Arsenal youth player, Ryan Smith to a 2 year contract. Sky Sports is the one reporting the news, with quotes from a representative for Smith. There are a few things that still need to be sorted out apparently, but it looks like Smith will be in Wizards blue next season.

The article confirms what had been on wikipedia for a little while now, and that's that Smith's father is an American. What that means is that Smith has a bit of an inside track to getting his citizenship and keeping him from taking one of the Wizards international roster spots. I'm excited about his addition and look forward to seeing what he can do. He gives KC more options on the left where they already have Roger Espinoza and Michael Harrington.
