2013 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Marcus Smart


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-4, 225

School: Oklahoma State, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Competitive fire/a winner
  • Can play either guard position
  • Attacking the basket
  • Awesome in transition
  • Strength
  • Physicality
  • Athleticism
  • Aggressive defender
  • Rebounds well for his position
  • Pull-up jumper




  • Weaknesses:
  • Inconsistent 3-point shooting
  • Shot selection
  • Ball handling could improve
  • Not a true distributor
  • Is he a one or a two at the next level?


  • Summary: I am not sure what position Smart will play at the next level but because of his ability to impact the game in a number of ways and how hard he plays on both ends, he appears to be a lottery lock. If Smart were a better shooter or true point guard, he would likely be in consideration as a top-five pick which still might happen.

    Player Comparison: Tyreke Evans. There are a lot of similarities here; size, strength, ability to attack the tin, struggles with outside shooting, versatility, lack of a true position. What separates Smart from Evans is his competitive fire and effort on the defensive end. I'm not sure Smart will ever be a 20 point-per-night type of guy like Evans was during his rookie year, but I wouldn't rule it out down the road.
