  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Double-doubles Thursday

    Smith posted 17 points (7-13 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and one block in 28 minutes during Thursday's Summer League loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Smith was ice cold from three but shot well from two-point range and got to the free-throw line to ultimately muster 17 points on 13 shots. His shooting has been off in general, as he's slashing 41/26/71 in four Summer League appearances. Overall, he's averaged 15.0 points, 8.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.3 blocks in 29.6 minutes per game.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Scores 19 in Vegas victory

    Smith finished Monday's Las Vegas Summer League game against the Spurs with 19 points (6-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine rebounds, two steals, a block and an assist in 28 minutes.

    Playing in his third game in Vegas, Smith posted his highest scoring total of the summer en route to bouncing back from his 5-of-19 shooting effort in Saturday's game against the Thunder. Both Smith and Josh Christopher -- who's also turned heads with his play in Las Vegas -- finished as a team-best plus 23 in their 28 minutes on the court. In season-long fantasy leagues, Smith will be among the handful of rookies worth targeting in the middle rounds of drafts.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Quiet in LVSL debut

    Smith finished Thursday's Las Vegas Summer League game against Orlando with 10 points (4-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and one steal in 31 minutes.

    It was a relatively quiet debut for the No. 3 overall pick, who was bested by Paolo Banchero (17 points, six assists, four rebounds) and a Magic team that knocked down 14 three-pointers. Smith did lead the Rockets in minutes played, but he took only 10 shots and committed five fouls while finishing as a minus-17. That said, Smith looked confident driving to the basket and hit a few difficult turnaround jumpers. The Rockets are off Friday before resuming play Saturday against Chet Holmgren and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

  • Rockets' Jabari Smith: Drafted No. 3 by Houston

    Smith was selected by the Rockets with the third overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.

    Many projected Smith as the frontrunner to go No. 1 overall in the 2022 NBA Draft, so this is a tremendous get by the rebuilding Rockets. The 6-foot-10, 220-pound forward can do it all. He has the size and frame to play down low in the post and also the agility and quickness to create his own shot attempts from the perimeter. Smith averaged 16.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 blocks as a freshman at Auburn last season. Looking ahead to the 2022-23 campaign, Smith will presumably start at the power forward position while Jae'Sean Tate and Kenyon Martin compete for playing time on the wing.
