Newest Dallas Maverick: Dennis Smith Jr

23 Juin, 2017, 12:54 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

In his one year at NC State, Smith Jr. averaged 18.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game.

"It did [go as expected]", Smith Jr. said on ESPN.

"This is one we had to get right and one what we had to get lucky with", Nelson said. Smith can certainly live up to the hype and make the three teams who drafted point guards ahead of him, regret their decisions in passing up on him.

Carlisle said the Mavericks didn't bring in Smith for an individual workout because they didn't think he would be available. But he's going to have to earn it. But this is a historic night for us, and we fulfilled a great need. "Playmaking is an especially important part of the National Basketball Association game now, that having guys like Dennis Smith Jr. that can create simply on their own, and on pick and rolls, pick and rolls with Dirk, is a great blessing for us to have". Smith was named Freshman of the Year in the ACC as well as ACC Newcomer of the Year by the Associated Press. Smith is the only player in ACC history to register two triple-doubles in the same season.

Maybe so, but four point guards were already whisked from the board by the time the Mavericks selected Smith.

The judge instructed them to keep working, but despite marathon 12-hour sessions, the jury said on Saturday it was at an impasse. The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission.

There was the ACL tear he suffered in high school to worry about too, as Smith's best trait, along with his ability to fill up the score sheet, was his freakish athleticism for a lead guard. Smith is a very athletic point guard who possess the all-around game that most coaches covet with their floor general. Smith will now be asked to join forces with 13-time All-Star Dirk Nowitzki and leading scorer Harrison Barnes to immediately boost a Dallas attack that ranked 30th in scoring (97.9 ppg), 27th in assists (20.8 apg) and 23rd with an offensive rating of 103.7.

Nelson called Smith a vital building block in the climb back to playoff contention.

"This is the guy we were after". "And if we would have drafted a lot higher, he was the guy that we had circled". So, again, positionally it fits.

The predraft chatter about owner Cuban and his team favoring point guard Frank Ntilikina from France may well have been a ruse. Now they have another younger piece in the 19-year-old Smith. So, I was thankful whenever I heard my name called by them.
