Bournemouth retain the option in January to recall Smith from Seattle, who are currently eighth in the Western Conference.
"Brad is a good player with a strong background and a skillset that we believe fits the style we want to play in the most important part of our season," Seattle head coach Brian Schmetzer told the club's website.
"He has participated at some of the elite levels of professional football, and we think he can give us some immediate help down the homestretch."
