#5 – Greg Smith
Greg Smith brings exceptional athleticism and an all-around game to balance out his raw offensive game. The additional drawback is that he barely reaches the height/weight requirement to play Center in the NBA.
Smith contributes the most off the ball via Assists, Steals and Blocks. He does have to improve his Rebounding and would be great for an uptempo team looking for a hybrid Center/Power Forward. Still not convinced? Ponder the stats below and press play!
