Top Jalen Smith News

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Will return to Indiana

    Smith and the Pacers agreed to a two-year deal Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Smith was traded to the Pacers from the Suns at the deadline last season. In his 22 appearances with Indiana, he averaged 13.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 24.7 minutes -- the best stretch of his career. The Pacers are rebuilding, so Smith should continue to get chances to prove his potential, though consistent minutes in the mid-to-upper 20s may not be there unless Myles Turner gets moved.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Dealing with groin soreness

    Smith is questionable for Saturday's contest against the 76ers due to left groin soreness.

    Smith has played 20-plus minutes in five straight games, so his potential absence could leave Indiana shorthanded against Joel Embiid. Goga Bitadze (foot) is also questionable, which leaves Isaiah Jackson, Oshae Brissett and Terry Taylor as the only healthy big man currently on Indiana's roster.

    Smith contributed 19 points (7-12 FG, 2-5 3PT, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, three blocks, two assists and one steal in the 131-122 loss to Philadelphia on Tuesday.

    With injuries to centers Myles Turner and Goga Bitadze, Smith has become a solid contributor for Indiana since the end of February. The second-year forward put up 13.7 points and 8.3 rebounds per game in March and has two games with 17-plus to start the month of April.

  • Pacers' Jalen Smith: Double-double in win

    Smith finished with 13 points (5-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two steals in 27 minutes during Sunday's 131-128 loss to the Hawks.

    With Sunday's effort, Smith snapped a three game streak of not recording a double-double. He's blocked seven shots over his past three games, which has been a factor in mitigating his sub-30 minutes per game. Per-36 minutes, Smith is averaging 17.7 points, 11.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game, while knocking down 39.1 percent of his threes.

    After he averaged 11.0 rebounds per game over a stretch of four contests from Feb. 27 through March 4, Smith has grabbed 11 boards in total between the Pacers' last two contests. His downturn in that category notwithstanding, Smith has continued to bring value as a source of efficient scoring, three-pointers and blocks off the Indiana bench. Through his first four games of March, Smith is averaging 14.3 points, 1.3 three-pointers and 1.0 blocks while converting 56.8 percent of his field goals and 83.3 percent of his free throws.
