Mark Smith is a strong, mobile swingman that played very well in the 2022 Reese’s All-Star Game. He was named as one of the two MVPs at this event, and he showed off a solid set of all-around skills there. He will need to be a more consistent shooter in games, but his skill set and versatility could enable him to project well into a 3 and D role in the NBA.
