Marcus Smart
PG/SG, 6’4, 220lbs, 23 years old, 3 years of experience

Career projections of his offence are not working out, but the defence is remarkable, with ball pressure, unabashed confidence, and the physical profile to defend at least three positions. Every team could use a play-er like Marcus Smart, even if they have both Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley. If he can spot-up better from straight on, develop in the post, finish better around the rim and become more of a threat off the dribble without needing to become a defence breaker-downer, Smart can go one or two levels further. At some point, though, the Bradley-or-Smart decision may be coming, especially given that, barring an extension, both head for free agency next summer.

Player Plan: Beginning final year of rookie scale at $4,538,020 and eligible for an extension. If there is a possibility of cap room in 2018, it would probably be cheaper to extend him in advance, given the new CBA’s increase in rookie scale free agent cap holds beginning that summer.
