How great is this?
Former Wake Forest guard Ishmael Smith has signed a multi-year contract with the Houston Rockets, as announced by the team on Monday.
Smith, who graduated from Wake Forest in May, went undrafted but received an invitation to play on the Rockets' summer league team last month in Las Vegas.
Smith impressed the team during the summer league, averaging 7.8 points and 4.8 assists per game and shooting 58 percent from the floor.
