The real concern I guess is his shooting: FG 41.3% 3pt 29.7% FT 77%Smart is Carter-Williams' main contender for the crown of top point guard NBA prospect in the world. The two couldn't be more different. Smart's game is all about power and vocal leadership on the floor. If he ever adds a knock-down 3-pointer to his game, he's going to be very tough to stop in the NBA.
But he seems to have that Russell Westbrook feel about him. He's not shy to take it off the dribble and can finish it at the rim.
What I'm most excited about though is we now have 4 legit PGs going in the top 20.
Considering we'll have our own pick as well as the GSW pick (who should continue to fade if Curry injury persists), we should be able to pick up at least 1 decent PG from this crop.
The Jazz play like azz when the J ain't workin'.
The Jazz aren't tanking. They're evaluating their talent. That is, they're seeing how often four young players can score over 100 points in a game with no help whatsoever.
Not hating, but no one here is highly thought of .. but rather better than the alternatives.
(I know that sucked)

Pre-season mock (7/13/13) - page 111
FA: can we really get anyone decent to come to play here?
Trade: unless we're willing to give up Favors/Kanter/Hayward, I don't think anyone will bite.
Plus... when somebody great comes along in the draft, there's 0% chance we'll get them because Greg will not let us have another losing season ever again.
In conclusion, I seriously think we're stuck with this senario: Favors/Kanter/Hayward + a decent young PG
