Can be foul prone


Rolands Smits is a skilled, combination forward that can shoot the basketball, as he can stretch the defenses with his ability to space the floor.  He also will run the floor to get some scores on the break, and he also is a willing passer and rebounder.

On the other hand, he does not possess elite physical tools, as he will still need to improve his rebounding, and he does not often get blocks or steals, but Smits may make up for it in toughness and in his ability to knock down shots.  He had a very good year this season, and he could be a potential second round pick in 2017.
