What they're saying about Marcus Smart

“Marcus Smart is the only current college basketball player who could start in the NBA right now.” — ESPN analyst and former Duke point guard Jay Williams, praising Smart but also ripping this year's draft class

 

“While Smart's play continues to be up and down … the general consensus among scouts is that Smart is not only the best point guard prospect in the draft, but he has the potential to be the best player in his class.” — Draft guru Chad Ford on ESPN.com

 

“I think he's already a pro in every sense except that he's not getting paid to play yet. Smart has the talent, build and work ethic of a pro. It doesn't matter what locker room he ends up in, he's going to fit right in.” — HoopsWorld's Yannis Koutroupis

 

“There's no question about his effort and there's no question about his will to win. That goes a long way during the draft process.” — an Eastern Conference scout
