I didn't know your name was Alex.
Anyway, it probably would take more than just Bargnani, but people here really undervalue Bargnani. Big men who can score and shoot are quite valuable. I don't think the world of Bargnani, but he isn't some scrub that some people make him out to be.
And what other players could the Hawks acquire that are better than Bargnani? I just don't see a lot of teams offering a 25-year old, skilled big man for a comparable player for Smith. Well, maybe Philly offers Iguodala or the Clippers offer Kaman in a package, but the Raptors
could compete with other teams' offer if they included Bargnani
and another piece or two.
