@Mr. Bitter Weddle is actually the perfect free agent addition for the Raiders, no matter who they draft, and for several reasons. First of all, he still plays at a high level, and, he now has something more to prove, especially if he gets to play his former team twice. Second, while his age might seem like an issue to many people, his age actually works to the Raiders favor. First, because he provides there secondarywithveteran leadership that will be sorely lacking with Woidsons exit, and second, because he wont require a long term commitment. The Raiders can tie up a chunk of money that theyneed to spend, but not get in the way of future extensions or contracts.
My first edition. Only one trade. I make picks using multiple big boards from different sites, and my own scouting. I try to fill needs as best as possible. This will change when FA moves define themselves.
Not a true point guard but lacks the ideal size to be a NBA two
Creating for his teammates
Lacks ideal NBA athleticism for a guard
Finishing at the rim
Summary: Nolan Smith has been one of the best players in college basketball the past two seasons but it is still uncertain how his game will translate to the next level. He did a solid job of playing the point this past season in place of the injured Kyrie Irving, but is he a one or two at the next level? Regardless, his experience, leadership and background of being a winner should get him late first-round looks as he could become a valuable rotation player.
Player Comparison: Jarrett Jack. Jack has been unable to lock down his true position at the next level, running the point at times but also playing some two guard. Smith is the that same category. He will probably have to learn to run the point at the next level but his ability to hit outside jump shots should find him a spot on someone's roster just like Jack.
