He was only 8 years old when his father, former Sacramento Kings guard Derek Smith, went into cardiac arrest and died aboard a cruise ship in the Atlantic.Yet, as he travels between cities during his rookie season with the Portland Trail Blazers, he hears the anecdotes, he meets the people, he asks the questions.
