RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

Smith’s 2011-12 season could best be described as a whirlwind. Due to the uncertainty of a season brought upon by the NBA lockout, Smith elected to sign a contract with the Zhejiang Golden Bulls of the Chinese Basketball Association stipulating that Smith would have to play out the entire season with the team, even though the NBA ultimately opened up shop in December. He would promptly set the Chinese league on fire, averaging 34.4 points per game, including one 60-point effort. In March, he signed with the Knicks just as Linsanity was becoming a worldwide buzzword. Smith re-signed with the Knicks over the offseason, and figures to get the bulk of the minutes at shooting guard with Landry Fields in Toronto and Iman Shumpert recovering from a torn ACL. When you draft Smith, it’s primarily for his ability to hit three pointers and score in bunches. Though he’s not regarded as a good defender, he still chipped in a career-high 1.5 steals in 27.6 minutes per game last season, providing a nice supplement to his scoring totals. Free agent signee Ronnie Brewer may be inserted as the nominal starter at shooting guard for the Knicks, but Smith has proven he can get his shots coming off the bench. The percentages from the field and from three-point range may not be pretty, but the raw numbers should be nice enough to offset that inefficiency.

2011-12

Smith played most of the season in China and returned to sign a deal with the New York Knicks in February. Given Smith's ability to score, steal and especially shoot the three, there's major upside here if circumstances cooperate.

2010-11

In the event that you haven't watched a Denver Nuggets game recently, and aren't entirely sure what J.R. Smith looks like, here's a clue: he's probably the one shooting the ball. It's not just that Smith likes to shoot the ball – he does – it's that he likes to shoot the ball from wherever he happens to be standing. Looking at the leaderboard for three-point attempts per game bears this out. Smith averaged 6.2 three-point attempts while playing 27.8 minutes per game last year. No one else on the leaderboard – not until you get down to Channing Frye of all people and his 4.8 attempts – averaged fewer than 30 minutes per contest. This isn't to say that Smith isn't skilled. He has a legitimately good shot, and he's actually got pretty excellent floor vision, too, but decision-making is a major problem for him. This carries off the court, as well: Smith was involved in a physical altercation at the Nuggets' practice facility in mid-August.

2009-10

Although Smith’s dealing with off-court legal troubles, the most recent of which landed him 24 days in jail and 500 hours of community service, it’s hard not to be optimistic about his fantasy potential on the court. After a slow start to the season, Smith finished on a high note, putting up top-50 numbers after the All-Star break with averages of 17.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 2.9 treys and 0.8 steals on a respectable 46.6 percent from the field. He’s in line to get even more minutes this season with Dahntay Jones in Indiana and should be a bigger part of the offensive game plan with Linas Kleiza off to play in Greece. Moreover, the Nuggets’ lack of depth at the swingman positions will really force coach George Karl into playing Smith big minutes. Smith will have a good shot at leading the league in three-pointers made and will also provide owners with modest contributions in points, assists, steals and free-throw percentage. We’re looking at potential top-50 player here who will be a break-even-type pick at worst if you draft him in the late-middle rounds.

2008-09

Smith is an inconsistent talent, sometimes disappearing from games completely while in others becoming the focal point of Denver’s offense. Still, one thing typically remains consistent, and that’s Smith’s ability to produce in the 3-point category. He hit five-plus threes in a remarkable eight games last season, finishing with 2.1 3pg, which was good for 10th in the league. He also made 40.3 percent of his 3-point attempts, setting a Nuggets franchise record. Smith doesn’t offer much else, but he won’t kill you in any area, either. He re-signed with Denver to a three-year contract over the offseason, and it’s good news that he remains in such a high-scoring offense.

2007-08

Smith had a chance last year to show everyone he was the answer at scoring guard. Instead he flashed gobs of potential from a scoring aspect but brought little else. The end result was the club trading for Allen Iverson and Smith’s demotion to a 15-20 minute a night back-up specializing in 3-pointers. That won’t change this year and with Chucky Atkins on board, a guy capable of moving between the 1 and the 2 with ease, Smith may see even less court time. We expect Smith to hoist ~350 3-pointers and hit 35-40% of them during his 13-18 minutes of court time.

2006-07

Smith was brought in for one reason, bring the Nuggets scoring guard position back to respectability. There's no denying the kid has gobs of potential but he just hasn't been able to bring it all together. If any coach can get the most out of Smith it's going to be George Karl who tutored such legendary slackers as Shawn Kemp and Sam Cassell and got them to play to the best of their abilities. Smith can score, and that's what he'll be asked to do a lot of in order to pull attention away from Anthony. Unfortunately, he'll also be asked to play solid defense which was Karl's main knock on him in camp and could derail his chances to become the staple at SG. Smith is definitely one to keep an eye on early in the preseason. If Karl starts talking about his defense improving then that's your key to try and grab Smith late in your draft as he's likely to see close to 32 minutes a night with 12-14 points, 4-5 rebounds, 2-3 assists, 1-2 steals, and good FT%. If Karl keeps talking about rookie Yakhouba Diawara and/or DerMarr Johnson and how they're willing to play defense then stay away from Smith and let someone else take the chance on a guy who probably won't see a whole lot of action during crunch time.

2005-06

Smith could be on the verge of breaking out as a second year player. As a rookie straight out of high school, Smith produced very respectable numbers post All-Star break by averaging 14.7 points and 1.3 treys per game. Smith is a high-flying 6-6 athlete that has the mindset to try to dunk on every drive, while also possessing a silky shooting touch from long range. This season Smith will be joined in the backcourt by rookie point guard Chris Paul, whose dynamic talents as a distributor and scorer should help Smith produce larger numbers as a sophomore. It would not be surprising for the 19 year-old Smith to average more points than his age this season.

2004-05

Although Smith was drafted straight out of high school, he has the size and shooting range to contribute right away.

2003-04

Has a 44" vertical, very deep three-point range, and already has an NBA body. Not great defender. No real mid-range shot. Either jacks up a deep three or takes defender off the dribble.
