The Dallas Mavericks select NC State Guard Dennis Smith Jr. with the 9th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.
The Mavs select the explosive guard Dennis Smith Jr. to add to their youthful backcourt of Yogi Ferell and Seth Curry. Smith averaged a gaudy 18.1 ppg 4.6 rpg 6.2 apg on NC State, but there have been questions surrounding how those numbers will transition into the NBA because of how poorly his team performed. He’ll be in strong contention for the Mavs starting guard spot.
