If the Hawks hold onto Smith for the rest of this season, they could still trade him this summer in a sign-and-trade deal. However, the market for such trades will begin to narrow; teams $4 million or more above the luxury tax threshold, or that would become $4 million or more above the threshold by making a trade, will be prohibited from doing sign and trade deals.. . . .If the Hawks let Smith walk without taking any salary back, they'd be able to clear more than $40 million off their cap.
best for atl to trade this unrealitic son of a gun and trade him by the trade deadline. If you wait until the summer and nobody else wants to give him a max deal, they have the cap space and Smith burns his bridge with the hawks, the hawks will get zero back for Smith. It will be a step backward for the teamPHX has the most interst. If i were ATL i would ask them a deal surrounding Gortat, Beasley and 1st round pick (lotto bound)
Nets going hard after Josh Smith, sources say. While they've discussed a trade for Ben Gordon, getting Josh is a bigger priority.Chris_Broussard
what can the nets offer for Smith? Humphries, Brooks, and picks?
