Are these fair comparisons? Who do you guys think he compares to?
Wade, Stephenson, Billups. Westbrook, Bledsoe, Evans, Holiday, DRose. He's got a little bit of all those players in his skillset but those are the best case scenarios. Stuckey would be a lower-end comparison but still within the range of where Smart might end up.
I'm unsure about Smart's bball IQ and actually think he'll make a better SG than PG but these strong, highly athletic guards with good handles that can get into the lane seem to work out far more often than not. If he gets some good coaching early in his career he's going to be very good.
