View Full Version : ATL/SAS/CHI/HOU - Josh Smith to Houston

Note: The Rockets trade a 2nd round pick to Chicago, the Hawks send $3 million to Chicago. Maybe more picks involved, but this is the basic framework.

Atlanta - They trade Josh Smith's expiring deal. In return, they get Carlos Delfino for Stevenson. Delfino, like Stevenson, has a team option for next year, and he's a better player. They also get Nate Robinson to replace Lou Williams. The biggest haul is Morris, who could be a good player in the future. I've seen the Morris/Delfino/Aldrich package for Smith elsewhere, so I based this trade on that.

Houston - They get Smith for Morris, Delfino, and Aldrich; they have enough young pieces, Smith is a good upgrade for them. They trade Douglas for Neal, which is a decent swap. Losing Motiejunas hurts, but they still have Jones, Greg Smith, Josh Smith, Patterson, and maybe Royce White. Nazr is a throw in to back up Asik and help the Bulls financially.

Chicago - Thibs hates Nate. They get a defensive minded PG who can spot up a bit as a replacement. They also get a 2nd round pick that should be decent. The cash compensates for adding a bit to their payroll while also adding to the value they get in the trade (they don't add $3 million to their payroll).

San Antonio - They have plenty of guards even without Neal. De Colo, Mills, Parker, Ginobili, and Green should be fine. They get Motiejunas, who could be a legitimate piece. On top of that, the extra PF allows them to do a trade like Blair to Golden State for a pick.

Bulls would not give up that much for a couple of scrubs and ATL gets raped in this trade...

So what do we get for Josh Smith? Literally none of those players would start on our team.
