According To The Experts:
Last year, Marcus Smart shocked many experts around the league when he decided to return to Oklahoma State following an impressive freshman campaign. As a sophomore, the 6'3" combo guard saw increases in points, assists, rebounds, and turnovers, as well as his shooting percentages from field, arc, and stripe.
Considered one of the most NBA-ready prospects in the draft, Smart possesses a strong, 227-pound body that belies his age (20) and makes him a force on the glass (5.9 RPG) and helps him get to the free-throw line with regularity (8.1 FTA/g). He's also a pest on the defensive end of the floor, where he averaged 2.9 steals per game.
“Strong, heady point guard with great size and instincts…Uses his mixture of quickness, strength, instincts, and aggressiveness to get to the rim, then uses his big frame and excellent body control to finish through contact…In addition to his scoring ability, Smart doubles as an excellent passer and playmaker. He has great court vision and is willing to make the unselfish play to set up his teammates.” – NBADraft.net
“Any discussion about Smart's prospects in the NBA have to start with his tremendous physical profile, as it will certainly give him a major advantage at his position and be one of the keys to any success he finds. Standing 6'3", with a 6'9.25" wingspan and a ripped 227-pound frame, Smart is bigger and stronger than most NBA point guards, and he's not afraid to use that to his advantage.” – DraftExpress.com
“Smart would have been the No. 2 pick in the draft last year had he come out. Another year at school has dinged his stock a bit, but his late-season surge has put him on very solid ground in the top 10. Some scouts love him, some scouts aren't enamored at all, but Smart's range looks like it's Nos. 4-10 right now.” – ESPN.com
