Zhaire Smith scored 12 points in 12 minutes on Friday night, shooting 4-of-8 from the field. Smith also had three rebounds and one steal in the game.
Smith had a lost season in 2018 after playing only six games due to a Jones fracture and an allergic reaction that kept him on the shelf. Right now, Smith may have to settle for starting the season in the Sixers’ G League affiliate and work his way back into the rotation, as he has been outplayed and may be the odd man out. Therefore, Smith should not be rostered in any format at this time.
