Ball-handling skills allow him to be a point forward-type player
Excels when attacking the basket
Relenteless on the boards
Solid defenisve player whether inside or on the perimeter
Inconsistent three-point shooter who has not shown great signs of improvement
Relies on his athleticism too much which won't fly at the next level
Doesn't have great discipline on the court
Tries to do too much sometimes
Summary: One extremely stupid decision likely cost Smith from hearing his name called at the NBA Draft. The former Volunteer was kicked off the team after being arrested on a gun possession and just recently signed a two-month contract with a Turkish team. NBA teams will be turned off by Smith now due to his character issues, but there is a chance that if Smith flourishes in Turkey and is given a second chance, he could still have a slim shot of being a future NBA'er.
Player Comparison: Thabo Sefolosha. Sefolosha is a young player who does a lot of things well on the court, but doesn't shine bright in any particular area. Still, Sefolosha has found a niche with his all-around ability on the court - something Smith must do as well. Outside shooting is neither player's strong suit.
@Black&Gold With Bryant it's up to him to figure it out for himself. Coates has been hurt for half the season and let Ben work with him in the offseason and you will see how much of a difference he can make. Rogers can play the slot and Hamilton can be a No.4 guy who gets maybe 10-15 catches for the year which isn't bad. DHB is another solid option at the 5 spot so there WR core is full can't add another without dropping 1 and as far as TE goes you fans are like kids in a candy store who eat every single piece and then get sick later, the Steelers proved that they don't need a big TE threat like the Pats to score points. Besides if you add a freak TE then your adding another guy who needs the ball and how can you expect Ben to keep all of those guys happy without ticking off someone else? James and Grimble don't scare a whole lot of teams but that's the beauty of it they will strike when you least expect it and that's a more dangerous weapon than having a freak TE.
