2018 Fantasy Outlook
After a promising rookie season, Finney-Smith dealt with tendinitis in his left knee, which ended up costing him all but 21 games in 2017-18. It was a disappointing development for a player that was hoping to earn a bigger role in the rotation. When Finney-Smith took the floor, he averaged 5.9 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 three-pointer across 21.3 minutes, all of which were fairly similar to a year prior. He did shoot just 29.9 percent from three-point land though, so no improvement was made after going 29.3 percent as a rookie. Looking forward to the upcoming campaign, the Mavericks added Luka Doncic with the third overall pick in the draft and he's likely to get big minutes on the wing right away. In addition, Dallas brings back the likes of Wesley Matthews and Harrison Barnes, so minutes are going to be hard to come by. When considering the crowded depth chart, as well as the fact that tendinitis can resurface at any point in time, Finney-Smith will likely be an avoidable option for Fantasy leagues.

Will re-sign with Mavs

July 2, 2019
Finney-Smith and the Mavericks agreed to terms Tuesday on a three-year, $12 million contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
After going undrafted in 2016, Finney-Smith has found a home in Dallas, and he'll return on a three-year deal after appearing in 81 games last season. With Tim Hardaway still on the roster, Finney-Smith may have a difficult time cracking the regular starting lineup, but he's a strong defender whose versatility should keep him in the regular rotation. Last season, Finney-Smith averaged 7.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 24.5 minutes per game.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
An undrafted free agent out of Florida, Finney-Smith surprisingly earned a spot on the Mavericks' regular-season roster, playing in 81-of-82 games. He averaged a respectable 20.3 minutes per game, but he translates more as a defensive stopper than anything, which resulted in Finney-Smith averaging just 4.3 points and 2.7 rebounds. He struggled with his three-point shot, going just 29.3 percent from deep, so he's not considered a legit three-and-D option quite yet. Looking ahead to the 2017-18 campaign, Finney-Smith should operate as a reserve at both forward spots. He could struggle to match his average of 20.3 minutes per game, though even if he did, it wouldn't mean much considering he's more of a defensive specialist. For that reason, Finney-Smith likely isn't someone to consider in Fantasy drafts.
Finney-Smith went undrafted out of Florida in June before signing a partially guaranteed training camp deal with the Mavericks. He's the prototypical 3-and-D wing, as he packs elite athleticism and a near-seven-foot wingspan to go with a 6-foot-8 frame. As a senior, Finney-Smith averaged 14.7 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists, while shooting 43.6 percent from the field and 36.6 percent from the three-point line. Still, questions remain about his fit at the NBA level, even after a strong performance at the NBA Combine in May. He'll face an uphill battle to cracking the Mavs' final roster, but the team has a few open spots, and Finney-Smith's defensive abilities could confer him an advantage.
