Feb. 24, 2015. What are your impressions of some of the other key players on your team? Jackson: “Jason Smith has really stepped up his game, and before he got hurt, so had Shane Larkin. Unfortunately, Shane hasn’t grown any since the start of the season. Tim Hardaway still shows great potential but has been inconsistent. Jose Calderon expects perfection, and since our operation of the triangle — while improving — remains far from perfect, Jose gets frustrated. When that happens, he gets tight and makes mistakes. Overall, though, and more often than not, everybody plays hard.”

The Orlando Magic got an up-close-and-personal look at what Jason Smith could do with his sweet shooting stroke last season. So when the team needed another big man for depth along the frontline, they already had a solid scouting report on the versatile power forward’s abilities. Smith, who had four double-digit scoring games and a season-best 25-point effort against Orlando last season, signed with the Magic on Tuesday. The 7-foot, 240-pound Smith can play both power forward and center and he could make a push to be the Magic’s starter on the frontline alongside center Nikola Vucevic.
