Former Texas Tech Red Raider Zach Smith has signed a training camp contract with the Charlotte Hornets. The 6-8 forward signed an training camp contract that will allow him to spend training camp with the Hornets. Smith will be able to earn his way onto a roster spot with the Hornets. Smith has already signed a contract with Charlotte’s G-League affiliate, the Greensboro Swarm, and will now have the opportunity to train with the top flight organization.

Smith was a mainstay with the Red Raiders, as he played all four of his collegiate years with the school. He is 2nd all-time in school history in blocks. Smith’s main calling card is his highlight dunks, and his amazing prowess on the defensive end.

All of Red Raider Nation wishes Smith the best as he gets an amazing opportunity with the Charlotte Hornets.
