Height: 6-8
Weight: 210
College: UCLA
Classification: Junior
Birthdate: 12/24/1999

Projected Draft Range: Likely Undrafted

Pros:

Decent scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on the move
Adequate rebounder
Decent defensive player
Solid athlete

 
Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Needs to improve his free throw shooting
Needs to improve his playmaking skills
Does not collect enough steals or blocks

Questionable feel for the game

 
Summary:

Chris Smith is a very athletic  combo forward that excels at attacking the basket to score the basketball.  He also may be able to defend multiple positions, but he will need to improve his overall skill level, especially from an offensive standpoint as he will have to work on his jump shot and playmaking skills.

So far, he’s been underwhelming in his first two seasons in college, but Smith is a player that could be looked as a possible second round candidate in the future if he continues to hone his overall game.
