Dorian Finney-Smith
SF/PF, 6’8, 220lbs, 24 years old, 1 year of experience

Playing more than 1,600 minutes as an undrafted rookie is quite the success story. It does however give ample airing to his limitations, of which there are many. Smith’s complete avoidance of the mid-range game was a virtue, and his 61% shooting at the rim (albeit often on assisted dunks) is a good size. The bulk of the offence though was three-pointers, almost all catch-and-shoot three pointers, at which he struggled badly. Not a handler, nor a rebounder, nor much of a post player at this point, nor a creator, and not yet a shooter, Finney-Smith’s best value was found defensively, where he could defend stretch fours and post players, including taking on quite a lot of star matchups despite his rookie status. He was better than his numbers, then, but is nonetheless limited.

Player Plan: Two unguaranteed minimum salary seasons remaining. Old for a prospect, but a prospect nonetheless, and worth giving a second year to.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
