I agree with a lot of your sentiment, but JSmith would still be a big upgrade. Smith's shooting numbers were his worst in 4 seasons but still better than JJ (and that's including his infuriating love of long 2's). He rebounds much better (15.9 to 11 RB% this year) and is a much better passer (20.6 to 13.9 AST%). His PER and WinShares are both much higher than JJ's. Defensive numbers are always tricky but they tend to favour Smith here as well.

All that said, I would take Iggy over Smith or JJ in a second. Iggy>Gay>JSmith>JJ >Tayshaun
