The Hypotheticals of J.S.
« Reply #75 on: February 19, 2013, 09:40:09 AM »
Say we trade Bass, Green, pick for him.
Then we win a championship with him.

Do Pierce and KG retire?
Do we resign Smith for the max?

Do they play together for the year in hopes of a repeat?
What would happen IF we won a championship with Josh, would we be obligated to give him the max since he obviously was good? Eh? Eh?

If we win a title with smith I assume KG and Pierce walk as champions and I'd be so pumped about our title I'd have no problem giving smith the max

There already is a running thread about Josh Smith. At least one new thread about Josh Smith was merged into it today morning.

I understand you like the sound of your own voice, but can you please (and this is not limited to the JS discussion) stop spamming the forum with new threads about topics that are already being discussed.

Thank you!

Trade Pierce for Smith with the wink wink, behind closed doors idea that Atlanta won't be picking up his last year, he will be paid his $5 million and then can return for the MLE here next year.

It's a partially guaranteed final year, not a team option.  If Pierce is traded then waived, he can't return to the Celtics for a year after the trade.
I have seen it listed as a player option. If it is and decides not to take the option, then he is free to sign where ever he wants.

Hey, it worked with Atlanta with Payton in the Antoine re-acquisition trade, why not now?  ;)

(Btw, it was all the hubbub over that trade that first brought me to CelticsBlog)

If one more Josh Smith thread means one less anti-Rondo thread, at least in the short term, then I will take that temporary reprieve between now and Thursday.

If we could sign Smith to a Rondo like deal then of course I would want him on the team, but the truth is someone will offer him a max contract this summer.

us being interested in smith makes plenty of sense. us being able to get smith makes almost no sense. we'd have to either trade pierce (why would atlanta do that?) or some combo of green (who might finally be coming around and is cheaper), bass, lee, fab. i'm not against a package with green for smith, but i think its not a great idea b/c we shouldn't offer smith a max contract, but you can bet some stupid team will, so there's a decent chance he's a rental. i think we have a better chance of getting him here as a FA, but we don't really have much cap space, so again, i just don't see a realistic way for smith to be in green, even though it is a good match (he likes our guys, our fans, and is really close with our best player).

People are carried away with this max contract talk! It's a rumor on a web page people. He is not going to get a max contract from anyone, players that make multiple all-star appearances get max deals. His agent whom ever that is knows this, lets get real please. He will most likely get get 80-90% of what ever the max is, stop thinking that it is written in stone he is getting the max. ::)
