Sports briefs: Mr. Smith finds a new home

Former Warriors forward Joe Smith, the No. 1 overall pick in the 1995 NBA draft, joined his sixth NBA team of his career, signing with the Chicago Bulls.

Bonds sits again, Giants routed

Just when we thought the Giants were about to turn things around in their road trip, they go and get pounded by the Cubs 12-1 at Wrigley Field. Barry Bonds sat out once again to rest his sore legs and Matt Cain was given another frustrating loss. Giants catcher Guillermo Rodriguez left the game in the fifth inning due to dehydration and heat illness.
