If not Embiid why not Marcus Smart at 3?

Let me start out by saying that I am an irrational Marcus Smart lover. When I look at the guy if I squint long enough I start seeing Dwayne Wade. In my opinion Smart is a perfect blend of analytic darling (excellent steal and defensive rebound rates) and traditional stats putting up a studly line of 18ppg, 5.9 rpg, and 4.8 apg for a college PER of 27.3 at Oklahoma Sate. Also, by all accounts he is an explosive athlete with good size and length that would allow him to play either back court position. All those things are great but the cherry topper to me is Smart's intensity and win at all cost mentality. This is a maximum effort guy who will do whatever it takes to win. Below is a link to a piece I found on NBADraft.net about Dante Exum and Marcus Smart that I thought was decent. I know most people would rather take Exum but if we don't take Embiid, which I would prefer, I think I probably would take Marcus Smart third. Am I crazy? Maybe lol.
