Joseph Leynard Smith (born July 26, 1975) is an American professional basketball player who last played at power forward for the Los Angeles Lakers of the NBA.

Born and raised in Norfolk, Virginia, Smith was the College Player of the Year at Maryland in 1995 and the No. 1 pick of that season's NBA Draft, picked by the Golden State Warriors. He was named to the 1995 96 All-Rookie team. Smith has been a journeyman throughout his career: in 1998, Smith was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers, then played five seasons for the Minnesota Timberwolves until 2003, and has since then played for the Milwaukee Bucks, Denver Nuggets, the 76ers again, Chicago Bulls, Oklahoma City Thunder, Cleveland Cavaliers, Atlanta Hawks, New Jersey Nets, and now the Lakers. With Chucky Brown, Tony Massenburg and Jim Jackson, he shares the record for most teams in an NBA career.
