Smith wants max

Josh Smith believes he deserves a maximum-level extension.

ďI feel like Iím a max player,Ē Smith said. ďI feel I bring a lot to the table. I have a lot of versatility. For what I do and what I give this ball club, I feel like Iím worth it.Ē

In the summer of 2010 the Hawks signed Joe Johnson to a six-year, $124 million contract. Johnson then had his worst season since joining the team in 2005.

The Hawks will be able to offer Smith a five-year deal worth about $94 million.

Smith again: ďThere shouldnít be any hesitation. Iím Josh Smith, Iím not anybody else. I Ďm not Michael Jordan, Iím not LeBron James, Iím not Brook Lopez. Iím Josh Smith. You canít look at what mightíve happened with another person. Letís say Joe. You canít say, ĎIím skeptical of giving another person thatí because of whatever they feel like happened."

He should say "Compared to what players make on the Toronto Raptors, I deserve the max."

Smith is killing me in fantasy league, dude can't make free throws, but somehow thinks he's a good sniper and goes for 0/3 from downtown every night. He's like .290 from the field this season, not the best time to talk about max extension
On the other hand it's just money, Atlanta should do it. Better expensive star than expensive Fields

If I was Atlanta, I'd deal him at the deadline for at least two 1st rounders and a player. Let Horford play his natural position at PF, and then throw the max at Dwight in the offseason.

How big is max for him?
I think Atlanta can't wait to get rid of him like they did with JJ. But to get something in return they need to put up a show

Probably starts around 17mil/y and tops out around 20+Mil. I might be wrong though but it's in that neighborhood.

If he quit launching 3's and anchored the paint defensively 100% of the game like he's supposed to, I still wouldn't give him a max contract. He's a lefty. You know I have issues with lefty's.

Josh Smith is not worth max money.

Nope.

He's worth Bargnani money, nothing more.

I dont care.

Josh Smith has never impressed me a great deal. He isn't a winner nor have his teams been winners. In fact the best years I can remember were when Horford was on his game.

He's a hype guy. Gets big dunks, is active...sometimes. But he isn't a winner.

I could care less what he thinks. I'm Atlanta I jettison this guy because they will NEVER be a complete team with him there. There is more to basketball than flash.

He aint a max guy. I agree with SJ. Somewhere in region of what Bargs is making now would be what he deserves. Not saying he wouldnt be better player, but he aint worth more money than we are spending on Bargs currently.

Possibly, but that would mean Bargnani is worth Aaron Gray money.

Doesn't matter what hes worth, he'll likely get it, or very close to. Someone always pays up.
