Josh is yet another player who has upped his value recently. But has he done enough to really be counted on going forward? Trading him for a couple good pieces, maybe a pick as one of those pieces, would be a very good move. But Atlanta has to get guys they know they want and need.
As far as trading Bargnani, it could be a similar situation. There's no way you include the pick though, and you have to get back a guy that you definitely want and need to make a definitive jump as a team. Smith could easily mean taking a step back. Too many questions, and no real fit at the moment.
