Smith was an integral part of the Cavs playoff team, starting all 77 games during the regular season and averaging 12 points in about 30 minutes a game.
He set a franchise record with 204 3-pointers made last season and ranked seventh in made threes across the NBA. He shot over 40 percent from beyond the arc and led the Cavs in steal-to-turnover ratio.
