2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Tyler Smith


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-7, 215

School: Tennessee, Senior


Strengths:
  • Versatility is the key to his game
  • Great combination of athleticism and strength
  • Can guard mutiple positions
  • Very good passer
  • Ball-handling skills allow him to be a point forward-type player
  • Excels when attacking the basket
  • Terrific finisher
  • Relenteless on the boards
  • Solid defenisve player whether inside or on the perimeter



    Weaknesses:
  • Character issues
  • 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.
