Dennis Smith Jr: Birth, and Career

Before his son entered high school, his father coached him in various Amateur Athletic Union tournaments.

Smith Jr. attended Trinity Christian School in Fayetteville, North Carolina, where he played high school basketball. Coming off the bench, he averaged 9.2 points and 3.0 assists per game as a freshman.

By his second year, he had established himself as a starter, leading his team to the 2014 NCISAA 1-A State Championship with 17.6 points, 9.3 assists, 6.9 rebounds, and 2.4 steals per game.

He had developed into one of the most exciting players in his class by his junior year. He was named the North Carolina Gatorade Basketball Player of the Year after leading his team to a 23-10 record while averaging 22.2 points, 7.1 assists, 5.1 rebounds, and 3 steals per game.

Smith Jr. missed his entire senior year due to an ACL tear. Prior to that, he had competed in the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League and the ESPNU summer showcase, where he earned national acclaim for his abilities.

Despite interest from colleges such as Kentucky, Duke, and the University of North Carolina, he committed to attend North Carolina State University after graduating from high school.

Dennis Smith Jr. returned to college early in January 2016 to finish his rehabilitation with the school’s medical staff.

In December of that year, at the start of his first collegiate season, he was named ACC Freshman of the Week.

A month later, in a win over the Virginia Tech Hokies, he recorded his first triple-double. He added a second triple-double a few weeks later against Syracuse to become the only player in ACC history to have two triple-doubles against league opponents in his entire collegiate career.

He announced his decision to forego his remaining college years and enter the draft at the end of the season, after averaging 18.1 points, 6.2 assists, and 1.9 steals per game in 32 games and being named the ACC Rookie of the Year.

He was chosen ninth overall by the Dallas Mavericks in the 2017 NBA Draft. His team thrust the highly regarded point guard into the thick of the action, and he showed no signs of crumbling under pressure.

In his first professional season, he recorded his first career triple-double, making him the third-youngest player in NBA history, trailing only and Lonzo Ball. In 69 games, he averaged 15.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game, earning him a spot on the NBA All-Rookie Second Team.

Dennis Smith Jr: Parents, Siblings

Dennis Smith Jr. owes his father, Dennis Smith Sr., a debt of gratitude for properly raising him and teaching him everything he needed to know, both in basketball and in life, which has all culminated in him becoming the person and baller he is today.

Smith Sr. was entrusted with raising Jr. and his older sister, De’Aira, after their mother, Helena, abandoned the family when Smith Jr. was only 13 months old.

The precise reason(s) for Helena’s departure from her two children is unknown, as the family prefers not to discuss it. When Smith Jr. was able to delve into it, he revealed that he had very limited contact with his mother at first, but that they have recently been able to build some sort of relationship over the phone.

People who knew Dennis Smith Srfamily’s in the neighborhood where he raised his children described him as a model parent.

Smith Sr. served in the Army, mostly as a reservist, to support his family before moving on to a variety of other jobs, including correctional officer and medical equipment technician.
