Explosive 1st step
Finishing at the rim
Needs to tighten up his handle
Needs to work on changing speeds (100mph)
Inconsistent jump shot
Takes bad shots
Deivon is an explosive, bouncy guard who looks to shoot first. He is tough to keep up with, especially in transition. He uses his athleticism to try to dunk everything around the rim. Uses he a quick first step to blow by defenders on the perimeter. He needs to improve his handle as he struggles to create separation off the dribble. And he has to incorporate a change of pace into his game as he's typically going 100mph all the time.
Tip-Off Classic - Lawrenceville, GA - 4/19/2019
Explosive athlete in the open court and gets off his feet quickly. Likes to push in transition and can create off the dribble. Willing passer to find open teammates. Really good in P&R action, spreads out the defense, and makes great cross-court passes with both hands.
Adidas MDC - Emerson, GA - 5/27/2019
At this event, Smith showed extreme athleticism at the point guard position. He puts pressure on the defense. Lacked a consistent jumper and had a bit of tunnel vision.
NBPA Top 100 - Charlottesville, VA - 6/11-14/2019
Very fast in the open court. Needs to work on his ability to create for others in the half-court.
Hawks Naismith Holiday Classic - Norcross, GA - 12/13 & 14/2019
Ast on 1st play in the right corner. Putting pressure on the defense in transition and half-court. Finishing in the lane with floaters and runners.
