Rave reviews continue to pour in from Vegas from coaches in attendance on Marcus Smart & Victor Oladipo. Both impressive on practice squad.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) July 30, 2014
Marcus Smart is going up against some of the best guards in the NBA at Team USA training camp this week and he's drawing plenty of praise over his first couple days of action.
The former Oklahoma State guard is one of only two NBA rookies on the USA Select team which was picked to scrimmage and work out against Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose and the rest of Team USA's established NBA talent. Now expected to contribute immediately as a rookie for the Boston Celtics, Smart is impressing in Las Vegas.
On Sheridanhoops.com, former college coach Bobby Gonzalez, said "the future of the point position in the NBA is in good hands with Marcus Smart and Trey Burke."
