I think Josh Smith is a better fit for this team.

He played in China last year but he's working out for the Pelicans this week. He is only 31.

I voted Robinson but I wouldn't hate Smith and It's just now dawning on me that he has the Horford connection. I'd worry about his history of feuding with coaches though it feels like if the Rockets wanted him, he'd still be there.

I'm really high on signing Robinson though.

I'd be happy with either guy. I just thought maybe another vet for the playoffs....

I think Smith shoots a higher percentage from 3 than Walker...

I wouldn't want Smith on this team at any age.  Stat stuffer (not in a good way), horrible teammate, historically bad shot selection, inefficient, uncoachable.

Robinson has some mental issues too.  There's no reason a guy with his toughness and rebounding ability should bounce around the league like he has.  In Philly, he posted a 30.2% defensive rebounding rate.  That's obscenely high, DeAndre Jordan-level rebounding. (Horford was 18.6 last year)

I heard reports that he looked terrible and over the hill in China.  Not sure how accurate, but he seemed to fall off a cliff at an early age even in the NBA.

That's true, he's an average defender at best.  But pulling down 15 rebounds per 36 forgives quite a bit, and he's only 26.  Kenneth Faried is a shaky defender and not nearly the rebounder and he inked a $50M deal before the cap spike.  Seems like TRob should've stuck somewhere.

I don't want anything to do with Josh Smith so I would pick Robinson of the two. I'd actually prefer Bogut on a vet minimum to both if we cannot get two.
