Smith spent part of last season with the Detroit Pistons, before being waived and later signed by the Rockets.
He was instrumental for Houston’s success during the playoffs, averaging 13.5 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.7 assists on 43.8 percent shooting from the field.
Teammate James Harden told the Houston Chronicle he wants everyone from last season including Smith to return, however, the re-signings of Patrick Beverley and Corey Brewer could make it too difficult to do so.
