Smith, a 6-foot-9 senior, averaged 12.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and two assists before tearing the ACL in his left knee during the team's eighth game last season. Despite the loss, the Bruins made it all the way to the Final Four as a No. 11 seed.
In 2019-20, Smith led the Bruins in scoring at 13.1 points per game and collected 5.4 rebounds over 28.3 minutes per game in 31 games (26 starts). He was named the Pac-12’s most improved player of the year.
The Pistons' two-way players from last season were Saben Lee and Frank Jackson. Both are restricted free agents.
The Pistons made four draft picks and one trade, taking Cade Cunningham with the No. 1 pick, Michigan forward Isaiah Livers at No. 42, Iowa center Luka Garza at No. 52 and Florida State center Balsa Koprivica at No. 57.
In the minutes leading up to the draft, the Pistons dealt center Mason Plumlee to Charlotte and dropped 20 spots in the second round.
