 josh Smith is a knucklehead of epic proportions, extremely overrated on these boards, he should be a perennial all star and he's never made even one in the garbage east.having him as your best player you're destined to be what the hawks have been....you're literally better off with rondo as your best player..and in the chance we had them both and even if they played together in high school, I believe they'd be a horrible match in the NBA

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

Maybe KG/Stevenson to San Antonio, Jackson/Splitter to Atlanta and Josh Smith to Boston.

Duncan/KG rivalry aside, I think that makes a lot of sense for all parties.  Atlanta doesn't take on long-term salary, gets a high-level center prospect, San Antonio gets an elite two-way big man to playoff-proof their frontcourt rotation and Boston gets a young frontcourt piece to replace KG going forward.
Pick 2 Team: Rockets (McHale)
PG M. Chalmers ($4 mil) SG J. Harden ($5.8 mil) SF W. Chandler ($5.9) PF Nene ($13) C S. Hawes ($6.5) 6th man: Ginobli ($14.1) 7th man: Marv Williams ($8.3) Enforcers: F. Ezeli ($1), C. Hayes ($5.5) Bench Marksman: A. Morrow ($4) Young Gun: R. Jackson ($1.2) Greybeard: P. Prigioni ($.5) Towel-Waver: Mike Scott ($.5)

"You can only select up to 4 options"

Lol, check dem alllllllll :P

J.Smith is a necessity on this team, but on the same level as getting another big like Al Jeff, Kaman, Shaquille, Robert Parish, etc.

I think we have a great chance of getting these guys

i think danny ainge would not waste his money on smith,
i never ever heard doc and danny talked about him
2 players in high-school? a years ago
and put them together in a team?
i think it will be the same, this team will not be a contender

just an opinion
unless you got lebron at sf and kobe at sg
and he is not worth that money to me, houston has a lot to offer, what we need next years is a 6'11 to 7'1 big man

Did you just say smith is not worth the max but iguodala is?

My goodness.

Josh smith 6'9" - 17 points / 9 rebounds / 4 assists / 2 blocks / 1.5 steals - 45%

Andre iguodala 6'6" - 14 points / 6 rebounds / 5 assists / 0.6 blocks / 1.5 steals - 44%

If you have to spend max money on either of those two players, you spend it on smoove every day of the week.

josh smith is overrated. Who cares if rondo is friends with him and played in high school with him. that was high school. Unless he wants to take a pay cut to play with his boy rondo, i dont want to hear this guys name.

this. if this is fantasy basketball i'd take him in a heartbeat, unfortunately this is real basketball and i don't think he is good as advertised.

Can't see what the Hawks would take for what we have...
Lets hope he goes to free agency and takes the pay cut to play with Rondo.
I don't want him taking up 5 years and 94 million.
Maybe 4 years 50-60 million then we can afford him and another All Star caliber player.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?b=1&v=UWlJiz1X8q0

"Game 4: 4 minutes 28 seconds 87-81
Game 5:2 minutes 28 seconds 84-81
These are scores in the 4th period and time left in Games 4 and 5 in 2011 versus the Heat. The Celtics were ahead in both games and Rondo was hurt, playing with one arm."  -Pearl 131  So close, yet so far.

good points. if he is a free agent next year, why pay for 1/2 of a season this year? when he goes to free agency we will quickly find out how much he loves his high school buddy.

as for salary, a trade of bass would open up some space for the team i suppose.

not till KG and Pierce retire.    Maybe then.

Jeff Green keeps improving , he is a better value.

Rather have Milsap that Smith on this current roster.
