How good will Marcus Smart be?
 
The only comparison I can find is James Harden, and that isn't accurate at all!

I think that comparison is terrible tbh (from NBADraft.net probably right?) he uses the screen and roll because he's had to play more PG than expected this season, but he is better suited in transition and playing as a slasher off of isolations (which he will see more of in the NBA). I see him as a best case: Dwyane Wade, worst case: Rodney Stuckey. He has some great talent, if he can prove to be a defensive stopper on the next level right away, it will allow the rest of his game to come to him more easily.

I think that's a pretty good evaluation of the range of skill set. He's a bit shorter than those guys, but that's the impression I get from him.
He's gonna be jammed in at PG, and he's physical, so I originally saw some Deron Williams, but he's not that type of shooter. He's a going forward type of guy. I could see like a bigger Ty Lawson, but that doesn't really fit for how physical he is either.
