They can also frontload to contract to further bully out the Hawks. Philly is in that spot where they don't want to look like pussies for going into the offseason with the most capspace and not signing anyone, so they might do something dumb like throw too much money at Smoove to save face.
What might happen though is that Atlanta will match the offer, and then ask for Igoudola back if Philly still wants to take Smith. Then Philly still like has 9 mil left in capspace to try for a Deng or Ellis, Hawks get a slightly worse player but it's better than losing Smith outright, and I think Iggy and Horford might compliment each other better than Smith and Horford anyways.
