everyone is terrified of signing Smith for 15-16 million. Who cares? He's worth more than 12 million. Look at his numbers. Put him in a good system with an elite passing PG and watch him flourish.
We have a tiny window with KG and Pierce and Rondo. Throw him in the mix and we are a serious threat to them for 2 years. Even then when KG and Pierce come off the books we have 2 All Star caliber players.
Playing with Rondo and getting the exposure that the Celtics give an NBA players means Smith will be an All Star for the next 5 seasons getting lobs from Rondo and coaching from Doc.

So what we pay him an extra 2-3 million a year to have him here. If we are going to give Pierce and KG a real shot at another title we need him.

Exactly , I made this exact thread earlier. Get Smith, he actually want to play here, is friends with the c's players, even going as far as to fly to LA to play flag football with them.

He gives us that interior **** blocking/rebounding force we need to save kg's legs, and like you said , he has never played with such good passers as kg,pp and rondo in his life. He wouldn't play with the ball in his hands as much as he has in atlanta.

I am keeping my fingers crossed

Yeah I agree 100%. I do understand why people are worried about him, from certain parts of his stats and shooting issues. But he's a serious addition on both ends of the floor and can bang in the paint with the best of them.
Danny will obviously target better shooters and getting Smith means we really need some solid shooting from our guards and 3.
Lets hope Green, Avery and Rondo can step up from 15 feet consistently.
The most exciting part about adding Smith would be our defensive power. We'd have Smith guarding the rim with KG on the bench and if we keep Green, we'd be able to put Smith, Pierce and Green on Lebron for a playoff series which would give us much more room to keep Pierce fresh for late games and out of trouble.

It looks like in your scenario, we managed to get Smith without giving up any of Rondo, Garnett, Pierce, Bradley or Green. 

I'm in!!  Get it done, Danny!!

Josh Smith wants to be in Boston and to play with his good buddy Rondo. I think a deal with Smith/a body for Bass/Green and a pick is the most likely. Even still they'll make a trade even if its a deal to trade for a no name big, Ainge just won't do any 3-1 deals since he already has a small roster to begin with.

If Josh Smith wants to be on the Celtics so bad, I am sure Danny can swing a nice deal in the offseason for him.

Josh Smith probably wants to score 20ppg and thinks his buddy Rondo will pass him the rock often enough to allow him to do so.

Josh Smith has to commit to defense first before Coach Doc lets him see the floor. You don't just walk in and score 20 ppg with the Celtics.

Your offensive stats ALWAYS go down with the Celtics. Tell me one player who averaged MORE PPG after moving to Boston... it's our pace. As long as they fit, it doesn't matter they keep their same PPG as before. We emphasize D and we don't score 110PPG.
