NBA Draft Prospect Match-up: Dante Exum vs. Marcus Smart

2 of 5


Smart – Think of Marcus Smart as a Jason Kidd-like player, strictly from a physical sense. He’s not going to blow you away with his speed or athleticism, nor is he physically dominant, standing at just 6’4. However, what he does possess is a solid wingspan at 6’8 which helps him on the defensive end. He’s a smart player that knows how to use the limited gifts he has physically.

Exum – Everything that Smart doesn’t have physically, Exum has. He has the height at 6’6. He has the wingspan at 6’9. He has athleticism. He can get to the rim and finish. Think of Penny Hardaway when looking for a comparison.
