NBA 2019 Slam Dunk preview: Dennis Smith Jr.

Dennis Smith Jr. NBA slam dunk

The NBA 2019 AT&T Slam Dunk contest will be held next Saturday, February 16, at the Spectrum Center in downtown Charlotte, NC.

Point guard Dennis Smith Jr. will be one of four competitors in the contest. Although he is only 6'3", Smith has displayed plenty of aerial skill and power with his dunking ability. As a preview of what we might see next weekend, the NBA has compiled some of Smith's best dunks from the 2018-19 season so far.

All of the featured dunks in the video came from Smith's time with the Dallas Mavericks. However, Smith will be representing the New York Knicks in the Slam Dunk contest after he was part of the huge trade for Kristaps Porzingis.

Smith will be competing against Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges, Atlanta Hawks big man John Collins, and Oklahoma City Thunder guard Hamidou Diallo for the title of Slam Dunk champion.
