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.

Shut down for rest of summer league
FDallas Mavericks
Rest
July 11, 2018
Finney-Smith (rest) has been ruled out for the rest of the summer league schedule, Dwain Price of Mavs.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Finney-Smith ended up playing in two Las Vegas Summer League games, averaging 9.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.0 block across 25.1 minutes. However, considering the 25-year-old already has two years of NBA experience, there's no reason to continue to play him and the staff will instead focus on evaluating some of the more unproven talent. Finney-Smith was limited to just 21 games during the 2017-18 campaign due to left knee quadriceps tendinitis, but he appears set to be at full strength ahead of training camp.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
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.
