5. Philadelphia 76ers Select Dennis Smith, PG, Louisville
The Sixers' current starting backcourt: T.J. McConnell and Gerald Henderson. McConnell has shown he can, at times, be a decent pass-first point guard, and he actually leads the team in win shares
, but an infusion of athleticism and scoring is desperately needed in that backcourt.
With 6-foot-10 Ben Simmons potentially jumping in at point guard next year
, Malik Monk, arguably the best scorer in this draft, gets real consideration here because he plays off ball, but Smith brings Russell Westbrook-esque explosiveness that will be really difficult for Philly to pass up. (Getty)
