69th: - Springfield Armor - Jerry Smith, Louisville

Smith played for the Bucks in summer league, at which point I wrote this about him:

Smith is a four year player at Louisville, who is all defense and no offense. At 6'2, he was a good defender in the Louisville press, but outside of open threes and the very occasional drive, he didn't contribute much offensively. As the old saying never went, college role players without NBA physical skills do not an NBA role player make.


They can make a D-League role player, though. Smith averaged 8.3ppg, 3.2rpg and 1.9apg for the Cardinals last year, and could do this again. And he'll hit his threes. The 28% he shot from three last year should just be a blip.

Jerry Smith

Smith is a four year player at Louisville, who is all defense and no offense. At 6'2, he was a good defender in the Louisville press, but outside of open threes and the very occasional drive, he didn't contribute much offensively. As the old saying never went, college role players without NBA physical skills do not an NBA role player make.

You can see a theme running through the players on this list. The Bucks are looking for some guard defense. With no backup to Brandon Jennings in place at the moment, and with Jennings's defense not being especially good at the moment, it makes sense. But like Delaney, Smith doesn't have NBA talent. So it won't be them filling the void. (Nelson has an outside chance.)
