Yahoo Sports' Krysten Peek shares her evaluation of Auburn Tigers F Jabari Smith

Video Transcript


KRYSTEN PEEK: Jabari Barry Smith is a 6-foot-10 forward out of Auburn and the potential number one pick in the draft. He led the SEC in three-point field goal percentage and posted seven threes in a win over Vanderbilt this past year. Smith's fluid game fits well with both the Magic, who have the number one pick, and the Thunder, who will pick second. He needs to get a little stronger defensively and make more plays at the rim.

Smith's NBA comp is a more perimeter-oriented Jaren Jackson with his length and skill set. He averaged 17 points and 7.4 rebounds in his one year at Auburn and has All-Star potential at the next level.
