|Jalen Smith: Named All-Summer League First Team|
Smith was named to the 2021 All-Summer League First Team on Wednesday.
The Scoop: Coming off of a relatively disappointing rookie season, the No. 10 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft made his presence known in Las Vegas, averaging 16.2 points, 12.5 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game across four appearances. While he struggled from the field (36.5% FG) and did not block a single shot, Smith showed off his three-point range (2.5 3PM/G; 35.7% 3Pt) and led the entire Summer League in rebounding. Heading into his second NBA season, Smith will compete with Frank Kaminsky and offseason addition JaVale McGee for minutes behind entrenched starter Deandre Ayton.
