Scoochie Smith is reportedly “weighing his options” for next season after receiving a training camp offer from the Cavaliers.

According to the Dayton Daily News, Smith is waiting to see whether other teams come knocking post summer league:

While Smith had confidence about his ability to play at the next level, he said, “Sometimes you’ve got to reassure the people. That’s what happened.”

Smith earned an invitation to training camp with the Cavaliers and said while he would probably accept it, he hasn’t made up his mind yet. He’s keeping his options open in case other teams express interest in him.

During summer league, he averaged 8.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and three assists. His best performance came in the second round of the tournament as the Cavs took on the Houston Rockets. He scored 17 points, 15 of which came in the last seven minutes. As the Cavs were eliminated in the semifinals against the Lakers, Smith dropped 14 points, grabbed five rebounds and dished out a team-high five assists.

Smith, who spent last season with the Canton Charge, definitely showed an ability to play fast-paced during summer league; however, considering how crowded the Cavs currently are at the one and two spots with Collin Sexton, Kyle Korver, George Hill, Jordan Clarkson, Cedi Osman and Rodney Hood (if the restricted free agent returns), it may be hard for him to see considerable playing time. He, though, might make sense on a two-way contract.
