Summary

Nick Smith has an exceptional burst of speed off of his first step which allows him to get into the paint at will. He excels in transtion play, filling the lanes and getting to the rim off the dribble. His ability to get into the paint and break down the defense allows him to set up opportunities for his teammates on kick outs and drop off shot attempts. He is also a rhythm shooter from behind the 3pt line and in the mid-range. Defensively he competes, he gets skinny over screens, contains the ball handlers and plays the passing lanes well. He needs to play with better pace as he seem to be going 100mph at all times. He also must get strong so that he can finish in the lane with contact.

Notes

Made Hoops Midwest Mania - Indianapolis, IN - 4/23-25/2021 


Make C&S 3 from the top of the key. Getting into the lane at will in PnR action. Tough R hand finish in transition. Makes nice turnaround 1 hand push shot in the lane. Makes C&S jumper from the R short corner. Makes short midrange jumper as the shot clock expires on the R side.


Peach Jam - Augusta, GA - 7/19 - 7/25/2021


Played with a high motor for a guard, seemed to always be in attack mode. Got into the paint whenever he wanted, finished with short pull ups, runners and with contact. He also shot the ball well from the perimeter off the dribble, seems to be more of a rhythm shooter as opposed to a pure shooter. His motor did get him in trouble at times, as he drew several offensive fouls just putting his head down and going. Must improve his ability to find teammates as he regularly draws attention when he attacks the paint, left a lot of opportunities for drop offs and kick outs.
