NBA Comparison: Marcus Smart

Strengths: 6’5 combo guard … Aggressive mindset … Good strength and balance. Plays physical and initiates contact … Attacks the rim off the dribble and is adept getting into the paint … Good midrange pull-up … Can hit shots from 3PT range. Shot 37% 3PT% on 3.4 attempts per game over the Under Armour Association in 2018 and 37.5% 3PT% on 3.4 attempts per game in 2019 … Averaged 13.4 points per game at 50% FG% at adidas Nations in 2017. Finished 3rd in scoring with 21.1 points per game at 47.7% FG% over the Under Armour Association in 2018 and finished 5th with 18 points per game at 51.6% FG% in 2019 … Good free throw shooter. Shot 75% FT% over the Under Armour Association in 2018 and 85.2% FT% in 2019 … Can play on or off the ball … Solid passing ability. Does a good job of baiting the help to dump to the open man. Averaged 2.9 assists to 1.3 turnovers per game over the Under Armour Association in 2019 … Good rebounder for position. Averaged 6.9 rebounds per game over the Under Armour Association in 2018 and 5.7 rebounds per game in 2019 … Good perimeter defender. Puts pressure and sticks when defending on the ball. Averaged 1.5 steals per game over the Under Armour Association in 2018 … Good shot blocker for position. Averaged 1.3 blocks per game over the Under Armour Association in 2018 … Competitive mindset … Younger for his class, turned 18 in September of his freshman year of college …

Weaknesses: Doesn’t have great length relative to height … Good athlete but wouldn’t categorize him as elite. Most of his finishing in the half-court is below the rim … Passing has been solid but he’s not an incredibly advanced playmaker … Despite not having bad 3PT shooting over the Under Armour Association, it’s an area he can still look to improve and mechanics aren’t incredibly fluid … Has been successful scoring in high school but doesn’t have an advanced scoring arsenal that sells him as a top scoring prospect at the next levels. Can expand creating with the ball, especially against a set defense …

Outlook: Tennessee freshman … 2020 McDonald’s All-American … Helped IMG Academy to win GEICO High School Nationals in 2019 … Played in the 2018 Underclassman All-American Game …
