"Doing my interviews in front of the trophies, that was the closest I've seen one up close. It would definitely be nice to touch one," said Smith, who in 12 NBA seasons has yet to advance past the first round of the playoffs. "That would be really nice to be part of a team that not only made the playoff push, but continued to advance.
"Seeing all the pictures, just seeing [Michael] Jordan soaring ... Scottie [Pippen] ... Toni Kukoc, who I played with in Milwaukee for a couple years. The history here is great. It would be nice to add something to it. That's the goal of our team now."
The new contract is 2 years, $10 million.
