Just going to say this now, whoever does land him will probably end up overpaying, big time.
Houston should sign Al Jefferson for as low as possible and work a sign and trade for Josh. T. Jones, Parsons, and Patrick Patterson. Try to get a 3rd team involved to get picks for Atlanta.
Three point shooting takes a hit but just about dominant in every other area. They'll get 40 free throws a game.
If he would agree to an extension, I would consider trading Evan Turner and Thad Young for him. Any interest, Atlanta?
I hate Josh Smith as a number 1 option, but as a third option/complimentary player to Jrue and Bynum, I think he could be great. That would be a formidable trio IF you have a healthy Bynum.
Josh Smith is a hard guy to figure out a value on? He gives a lot to a team but his offensive range leaves a lot to be desired. If he were 6'10", he would have much more value. But he's a tweener and now since he's lost weight, he looks even more like a SF. But there's not too many starting SFs that can't shoot from the outside.
He reminds me a lot of a smaller Joakim Noah. Is very good defensively, brings a lot of energy, very athletic, can finish at the rim, but has problems with shooting. I think Smith has so many intangibles but when it comes down to value for Smith, a lot of us still point out that he can't shoot, which is needed for a player his size in today's NBA.
I would like to say Dallas just because they're in a mood to deal and have an owner who will pay. As far as playoff teams he could help, I'm not sure? Also, this guy is known to have attitude issues when things aren't going well. I think he needs an old school like coach like Pop who won't tolerate the attitude.
Wouldn't it be interesting if the Hawks keep him this season and Howard doesn't resign with LA? Howard and Smith are best friends and I think the Hawks might be clearing out even more cap space so these 2 guys could possibly play together. Imo, Smith isn't the demanding type in the low post so Howard would be the number 1 option and would be comfortable and happy because he's the number 1 and has his best friend playing with him. Something to think about...
Portland gets the 6th man we have been desperately searching for. As well as a serviceable C for rest the year.
Atlanta gets some youth and any picks think required to finish the deal.
(Hickson gets to go to his hometown)
76ers get Smith and some expirings. If Bynum comes back that is one hell of a 1-2 punch, if he doesn't then at least lessens the blow a bit (Assuming Smith re-signs).
