On Twitter yesterday a fan asked Smart if he was working out in Utah, his reply was simply "no. They're not interested in me." He has since deleted this tweet.
ARE YOU SERIOUS JAZZ? If this is true (rumors would suggest yes) I would be furious. How can we rule out a guy this early? Not even bringing him in for a workout??? Bushleague, man. I am so frustrated with our front office right now. I like Lindsey and all, but c'mon. Smart is a solid prospect that is ultra-competitive. Maybe he would add some bite to the softies (Phil Johnson's words, not mine) we have right now. We've already botched the whole tanking process and lost out on the great prospects, now we are casually dismissing a guy who could very easily be off the board by the time we pick. Smart isnt even my favorite prospect at #5, but by no means should we dismiss him so early.
