As previously reported, Denver Nuggets are trading Monte Morris and Will Barton to the Washington Wizards for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Ish Smith.

After this trade, Nuggets will be the 13th Ish Smith's team in his NBA career. No other player has ever played for 13 different teams in the league.

Ish Smith was undrafted and started his NBA career in 2010 for the Houston Rockets, but in his first season he already got traded, Rockets sent the 1.83-meter tall Smith to the Memphis Grizzlies.

NBA journeyman Smith had a hard time finishing the season on the teams he signed with and got traded numerous times.

Smith's longest stint with the same team was with the Detroit Pistons, where he spent three seasons from 2016 to 2019.

The journeyman point guard last season played for the Charlotte Hornets until he got traded to the Wizards in February. Smith has averaged 6.3 points, 3.8 assists, and 2.0 rebounds per game throughout the last season.
