Expectations around the NBA are growing that the Atlanta Hawks will trade Josh Smith this season, according to a source.

Smith and the Hawks' management have seemed at odds over the past month and the two sides have reportedly met to discuss the forward's future.

I would salivate.

Lowry
Ross
Gay
Smith
Val

would be so hot right now. How would we even get that done? We don't have off season money for Smith so it would have to be a sign and trade.

Wouldn't we get his bird rights and have the ability to sign him to whatever we want over the cap? MLSE owes us for nothing but a shit product other than 1 year of this teams existence.

As for that lineup though, that would be amazing, if every player was actually playing to their best ability and trying 100% every night, that would be a very good, very athletic team.

I've been thinking about this lineup a lot ever since there has been some dissension between Smith and Hawks management. Although I don't like Smith at the Max, as he suggested himself, I would throw a decent chunk of dough his way. Too bad our hands are tied because of the Fields signing and Demar extension. Concerning a possible swap, I don't think we make good trade partners with ATL. My guess is they'd want Val to pair with Horford.

Nonetheless that's a diverse lineup on both ends. Offensively, they could run teams ragged, and defensively they could pressure and switch in many situations. One can dream.

If ATL is going to trade Smith, then they'll do it with Lakers. Lakers think D12 won't resign with them and would go to ATL anyway, so why not get Smith for howard rather than nothing for Howard? Also Atlanta wouldn't get much better from anyone else than Howard + hopes of CP3 signing with them.
Oh, and Raptors will end this season with players they have now.

If they all play hard on both ends and run, there are a lot of similarities between that lineup and the Denver Nuggets.

Josh Smith told the media that he deserves a max contract, and this is starting to scare teams away slowly lol.

Before they played together I wanted to trade Demar and Bargs for him but now I wouldn't do it, Rudy and Demar are meshing well so far. Would still do it if we can trade Bargs for him but that's not happening.

It's an upgrade in talent. He'd add so much toughness and D to the team.

But I'd prefer this deal as a sign-and-trade in July. I think if you trade for him now, you are pretty much putting yourself in a hostage situation and you'll end up giving him the max. If you wait for the summer, he's likely not going to get the max and he'd sign and trade for less.

Hawks have told Smith that he's not getting a max contract from them.

Hes not worth over 20 million, fuck that. You know things are messed up when Josh Smith makes more money than Lebron, Durant, and Melo.
