    Josh Smith?

    I know...I know...another Josh Smith to Pistons idea...right. But seeing as in that one article posted in the Josh Smith thread in the NBA forum, the signs are evident that he's not gonna want to be in ATL for his future. We've got cap room this upcoming offseason, and there's no doubt in my mind that Joe D will in fact make a move for him. Think him coming to the D will realistically happen? Why or why not?

    Josh Smith Won’t Sign Extension With Hawks This Season

    The last year of Josh Smith’s contract is coming up, but don’t expect the Hawks forward and his team to be talking extension details over the course of ’12-13. According to the Daily News, Smith is planning on working out his following deal next summer: “Josh Smith has told the Hawks that he isn’t going to sign an extension during the season. He’d rather wait to become a free agent, when he can get a five-year deal. An extension would limit him to a three-year deal, according to the new CBA rules. New GM Danny Ferry has upwards of 10 players who could be free agents at season’s end.”

    Could you imagine Smith, Monroe, and Drummond all on the floor together? It's never going to happen, but we can always dream

    Toronto fan on why JVal is better than Drummond.

    I like his game, but I don't think he would be a good fit. If we didn't have Monroe or Drummond, I would be all for it. I think if Monroe continued to play center, then he could be our main PF. As we sit right now, I like our key players. If he could play SF at the same level, then I might think different.

    He's cool, but when he gets older in a few years and his athleticism has faded, we'll be begging to trade him.

    Thanks stud!

    I used to love Josh Smith. I thought he was sick. I still think he's cool and all but I wouldn't really want him here. Perimeter scoring is what we need now.

    Last night Lebron made it LOOK SOOO EASYY. If we want to build a championship team than we need guys that can play. We need talent. Defense.

    So far I am pretty convinced that Drummond is going to be elite in this league. I saw him get a rebound over lebron. I saw him grab the ball in mid-air over lebron and dunk it backwards. He ALSO GAVE lebron a challenge on the boards. Those are the type of players we need. Guys that have something specific to their game thats elite in some way, whether its rebounding, 3-pt shooting, defense. something.

    I don't know if I want him as a SF. If he comes here he will have to play at SF or force Moose/Drummond off the bench to play PF.

    no thanks,He would play out of position or or force drummond or moose to the bench and will also be on a decline in a few years taking all our cash.

    Why wouldn't this guy fit at small forward?

    Athleticism would still be there in his thirties.
