Expectations are growing that the Hawks will trade forward Josh Smith, a source said. Smith has averaged 17 points, 8.6 rebounds. 4.7 assists and 2.1 blocks this month despite the trade speculation.

I know he has bad shot selection, I know he's not worth a Max contract, I know he can't shoot free throws......

But I want Josh Smith on this team!

What other offensive options and play makers does ATL have? no wonder Smith is roaming around the perimeter and takes bad shot. He obviously isn't a go to guy on offense, but that's the role he is playing .

He is an elite defender , can run the floor , rebound, pass, finish strong . He brings a lot to the table, and if we could get him would be a solid #2 or #3 piece for the future .

We know he wants to come here and play with Rondo,and he is the best big man available (outside of dwight) for the next two seasons in free agency .


I just have a feeling Danny is going to try for it ....

oh did I mention, HE ACTUALLY WANTS TO PLAY HERE.....

The problem is that Josh Smith is a free agent in a few months and has already expressed that he is looking for a max contract. So, he's pretty much gone or overpaid as soon as we get him.

That said, he may have zip trade value as a result.

Only thing I could see Atlanta wanting is Pierce.

Not even. They would probably want Sully/Bradley/Green, for rebuilding, maybe Melo.

Though it is doubtful Ferry would want to trade with us at all.

I was all for Smith before the Rondo injury. Now that he's down til atleast next season(and who knows how long til he's 100%), I'll pass on Smith. He's not worth giving up younger chips such as Bradley or Sully since I don't think this team is contending.

honestly 94$ million contract is a headache for a team

bradley green sully melo? do you think its enough?

we can resign for a 94$million contract?

i do a trade if its kg salary or pierce salary or rondos salary, in this case we can resign smith for a max contract

and to tell you honestly? after giving smith a 94$million?

we cant resign any stars except cheap player. dampier arenas fisher etc etc, or some d-league players that would take 885$ dollars contract or lesser

in this case I'll pass

even with rondo on the team?
it does not make us a contender

it makes us more worst

if its al horford? i take it more effective than smith
in this case kg can go back at pf and horford at center

if you trade bradley sully melo green

lets say pierce and kg retires
who are your bench players now?

does it make the celtics contender now?

HELL NO!

really bad idea
i'd rather stick on jeff green

he deserves that money than smith

i think before i post

I'd rather sign kenyon martin or dampier even a bench player but at least i save a lot of money

without being stuck at PF with 94 million

think of it man

Seriously, please try to make your post a little more coherent.  It makes it difficult to understand what your trying to say posting like this.  Not to mention, it practically takes up the whole page, and is even worse once quoted.

I'm not the blog police or anything, so disregard me if you wish, I'm just trying to give some friendly advice.  My eyes hurt after reading that.

Boston receives Josh Smith and Kyle Lowry.

Boston gets a Pg to replace Rondo this year and Josh Smith.

Grizzlies receive Jeff Green, Kyle Korver, Courtney Lee, Ed Davis, and Leandro Barbosa

Grizzlies couldn't ask for a better package here. Green potentially replaces Gay. Korver is expiring and a fantastic shooter. Lee can replace TA's Defense and is a better shooter. Plus he doesn't have to be extended like TA will. Ed Davis is a nice prospect on a rookie deal who could potentially replace ZBo in 2 years. Barbosa replaces Bayless and is cheap.

Hawks receive Jose Calderon, Tony Allen, and Fab Melo.

Hawks exchange Smith's expiring deal with the combination of Calderon and Tony Allen's expiring deal. They also get a prospect on a rookie deal in Fab Melo. Instead of losing Smith for nothing next season and just getting cap space, they let TA and Calderon walk to maintain that cap space gaining Fab Melo in the process.

Raptors receive Rudy Gay, Jerryd Bayless, Deshawn Stevenson, and Jason Collins.

Raptors get their man in Gay and keep Derozan. They exchange some contracts for other contracts to make it work.

I think the only team that might be unhappy with this deal is Atlanta. I propose either adding a first rounder to their haul to get it done. Or seriously contemplating exchanging Fab for Sully, but that might be a deal breaker. But I think this ultimately works for everyone.


Thoughts?

Theres no doubt Atl wont resign him and dont think he has any interest to play there anymore. So I think they will trade him to get something instead of letting him walk and getting nothing like Toronto and Phoenix got nothing with Bosh and Amare. Guy is a top 20 player when he wants to be so I may think long and hard about him.

yah! signing him would hurt us, i'd rather sign iggy or someone if that is the case

or less cheaper, or i'd rather pursue on varejao 100% useful for the team, than a 94$ contract which is i'm not sure if he is an impact on the team
