No max contract

Get him if he wants to play for workable amount

Otherwise pass

Yeah I go here. Of course he wants Max money. What player of his caliber wouldn't. But thats why there are negotiations and I think that the appeal of playing for the Celts alongside Rondo Garnett and Pierce would take his mind of a Max deal. At least I would think it would.

I agree, if we get him on the team, I think it is pretty much a guarantee he would resign to play with Rondo. Doubt he can get a max contract from anyone , but even if he could , would he leave the c's and rondo for an extra 2 mil a year to play with a team like Phoenix?

I say get him in here and see how he fits with the team.

4 years 12-14 mil per sounds about right

12-14 mill sounds right to me. I would think PP would be in a package to trade for him, but I'm willing to try this line up.

Rondo
Bradley
Green
Smith
KG

Scoring would be hard but the D could be unreal. Would need some shooters off the bench and hope Melo could play 1-15 mins a game.

pierce in hawks jersey? while rondo and smith are happy?

bad scenario,

I think Josh Smith is worth around $15 million a year. So a $75 million over five years deal.

Still, if my team had enough flexibility to add another star or two, I'd give J.Smith the money and pay the luxury tax.

If Josh Smith is worth $15 million, the Jeff Green is worth $9 million a year-oh wait  :'(

Something to be said for at least a higher profile fa wanting to play here. Rondo and Smith may attract others..only chance?

bad scenario,

  So having the players still on your roster after you make a trade happy is a bad scenario? Interesting.

Josh Smith is not worth the max. He's like a taller pre-memphis Tony Allen. I'd take that as a role player for 9 million per year. But 15+ per year. No way. I need more maturity out of that financial slot. He makes so many bad decisions, and I can never see him leading a team to the finals.

I'll pass. I'd rather ride out Pierce and KG's last year and a half, see them retire as Celtics, and build through the draft.

We wouldn't be trading Pierce/KG for him though, Atlanta would want no part of either player. Maybe in a 3 team deal....

It would be so frustrating to get Smith after losing Rondo.  I would have loved to see them play together this year with Bradley/Pierce/KG surrounding them.

Yeah I dont see the Celtics as having anything the Hawks would want. It takes 2 to Tango.

I'd like to see him being given a green light to shoot all the long jumpers he wants early in the shot clock in a D'Antoni-ball system after being traded to the Lakers.

Working from the Memphis/ Toronto rumor add the celtics and hawks.
Lots of parts but what the hey.
Bos sends green, bass, Wilcox, terry, Collins
Receives calderon, josh smith
Memphis sends gay
Receives bass, Ed Davis, Wilcox and Toronto picks
Atl sends smith
Receives terry, green, t ross
Toronto sends Ed Davis, calderon
Receives gay, Collins
I understand its likely not realistic
Thoughts?

At least the Knicks had young pieces to send to Denver. The Celtics have Bradley, Sullinger and then a bunch of contracts other teams don't want.

Bass, Green and Terry are overpaid.

I also actually wonder if Danny and Doc have much interest in Smith at all. He's got a lot of Ricky Davis / Antoine Walker to his game.
