Smith for Terry,Bass First

 You have to throw in Collins to make the salaries work. Take it or leave it Hawks. If you don't trade him he just signs as a free agent to play with his boy Rondo.

We dont have the cap room to outright sign.
Not to mention I dont want him for max (or near max) money which is probably what we would need.

I would do this even for a season rental though just think the Hawks will get something better if/when they trade him (which they really should do)

Only if he forces his way here like Melo to NY.

c's are well over the cap, no way he can sign here. Don't count on a s+t either because why would the Hawks give him a max contract and then take on the salary to match smith's max going out ?

I would trade for him this year though if we could get a third team involved . 

Green, Melo, 2 1st rd picks  to atl
Bass is sent to a third team in exchange for an expiring contract going to Atlanta instead of Bass' contract .

PG: Rondo     / Terry
SG: Bradley   / Lee
SF: PP        / FA
PF: Smith     / Sully
 C: KG        / Collins or vet min

You'll have to give up more for them to take equal salary. You'd probably be saying good-bye to Bradley and Sullinger.

Not worth it imo. Just move some people, shift some money, and sign him when he's a FA.

Total misunderstanding of cap management for both the Hawks and Cs.

Never ever ever ever ever happen.
