2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Athletically Smith possess cloud piercing jumping ability ... Few players at his height can run the floor with his speed ... Excels in a fast break type of offense ... Always active as a defender thanks to long arms and footspeed ... Shows great skill as a help defender with his shot blocking ability ... Offensively Smith understands how to use his quickness to get separation from his defender ... Excellent slasher who moves very well without the ball for easy scoring opportunities ... With his athleticism he makes some impressive dunks in transition ... Has greatly improved his perimeter shooting over the past two seasons ... Attacks the basket with aggressiveness if he is able to drive past his defender ... Owns a solid work ethic and most importantly the hunger to improve ... Can be a headache for opposing defenses as he creates mismatches with his versatility to play both forward positions ... Has three point range on his jumper but must gain consistency ...

Weakness: Needs to work on consistently taking opposing defenders off the dribble ... Could stand to gain more weight and add upper body strength ... This improvement in upper body strength would allow for him to finish better after contact occurs ... Back to the basket skills are in need of development as he prefers to face the basket... Defensively he is very foul prone when guarding a physical post player... Shooting from mid-range remains streaky ... Confidence can go through periods of ups and clowns during a game ... Not really a player who enjoys physical contact... Defensively he will need to improve on perimeter defense ... Needs to improve on his ball protection due to his carelessness with the ball... Lack of strength hurts him under the boards as he can be easily boxed out... Poor free throw shooter ... Needs to work on being a more consistent shooter when behind the three point line ... Court awareness can be questionable at times due to the tentative nature of his play ... Is still very turnover prone as he tends to force passes ...
