Five Biggest Surprises from Summer League (Russ Smith)

LINK

quote:

Russ Smith (New Orleans Pelicans). Summer League often becomes the world of point guards trying to get noticed by shooting the ball. Big men with good post position go hungry while guards pound the ball into the ground then cross-over, step back and fire away. Not Russ Smith, the Louisville guard playing for the Pelicans was a real floor general. Yes he scored 16 points a game but he had 6.4 assists a game as well in Vegas. There are adjustments to be made for him to stick in the league long term (more than four turnovers a game) but he was a second round pick who looks like a guy who could give the Pelicans some steady minutes at the point as a reserve

Smith seems to fit what Dell and Monty want in a PG. I believe he will turn into a good backup point while AR plays both point and 2 guard.
Loved the PJax trade for him since Day 1.

yep, a defensive backcourt guy who can actually run the point. A perfect backup to Jrue after he gets accustomed to the league
