View Full Version : Nets/Suns/Rockets/Bobcats/Spurs pursuing Josh Smith

The Brooklyn Nets are aggressively pursuing a trade for Atlanta Hawks star forward Josh Smith, league sources told ESPN.

The two teams are engaged in discussions. But one source said while "there has been lots of talk, nothing is close yet."

As the NBA's Feb. 21 trade deadline nears, Brooklyn is proving to be one of the most active teams in the league. As reported by ESPN.com on Friday, sources said the Nets also are talking with the Charlotte Bobcats about a Kris Humphries-for-Ben Gordon trade.



While the Nets certainly want Gordon, sources said acquiring Smith is their higher priority. A trade for Smith would seemingly kill a deal for Gordon, because Humphries is one of the players being discussed with Atlanta.

The Nets are willing to give up Humphries and second-year shooting guard MarShon Brooks for Smith. But it almost certainly will take more than a Humphries-Brooks combination to pry Smith away from Atlanta, and one source said the Hawks want Brooklyn's first-round pick.

Some scenarios that have been discussed include the Hawks' Anthony Morrow, who played the past two seasons with the Nets, returning to the club.

ESPN.com's Marc Stein reported Saturday that the Hawks want a young center in return for Smith.

The Nets may have to get a third team involved to pull off a trade for Smith.

Smith will become a free agent this summer, and Atlanta is deciding whether to trade him before the deadline. One source close to the situation estimated there is a 60 percent chance the Hawks will move Smith.

If the Hawks don't trade Smith, they risk losing him for nothing as a free agent. Atlanta could re-sign Smith, but he wants close to maximum-salary money, if not the max.

One school of thought has the Hawks keeping Smith in order to make themselves more attractive to Smith's long-time friend and fellow Atlanta native, Dwight Howard.

Howard, who is struggling through a nightmarish season with the Los Angeles Lakers, will become a free-agent this summer, and Atlanta will join Dallas and Houston in offering him a max-salary contract. Sources have said Howard has little interest in playing in Atlanta.

If Brooklyn did this, it shows that they still definitely want Dwight IMO.

well they need to do something because they can't play defense, can't score consistently, and have the worst offensive sets I've seen in the nba in a few years

I'd be shocked if all it took to get Smith was Humphries, who lost his starting job to Reggie Evans, and Marshon, who barely cracks the rotation. I don't know if they have multiple picks but as projected their mid-late 1st rounder doesn't have much value in a draft that isn't too deep

That's like the Raptors offering:

Gray + Anderson + Kleiza + 2nd for JSmoooooove.

Humphries is just a cool guy.

Don't think this means they want Dwight, actually I'm not sure how you could conclude that from this. It's been reported they wouldn't trade for him according to a lot of reporters associated with the team.

As for Smith, it'd be interesting if the Nets actually pulled it off. I'm surprised to read they're actually engaged in discussions, didn't really think it was possible. They must be trying to find a third team with a younger center to bring in to the Hawks. But with Josh, Nets defense would improve by a lot. He wouldn't have to force so many bad shots either with Brook Lopez working out of the post and Deron Williams and Joe Johnson on the wings.

josh smith will just turn you into the atlanta hawks from a few years ago with better surroundings. smoove won't fix anything you said up top, except maybe scoring consistently (i said maybe). he's fun to watch though.

No way Atlanta will ever accept anything BK offers. There's nothing there worth trading for. Most every package, since they have no expirings, would be worse than letting him walk.

I think it'd improve the spacing by a lot solely because Smith is somewhat of a threat from the perimeter. Opens up the lane for Johnson and Williams to drive into the paint. Post defense, one of the Nets' issues, would improve because as we all now Smith is an elite paint defender. Also, his athleticism would allow the Nets to be more effective in transition, because right now, they're horrible in the fastbreak lol.

Smith is outrebounding him... That trade would make zero sense for the Hawks.

I don't think Humphires and Brooks is that bad a package. I'm not sure why Humph isn't getting minutes, but he should be. He is a better rebounder than josh Smith, and Brooks has some potential, even if he has troubel cracking the rotation, though he needs to develop a 3pt shot. You got to remember to, he's fighting for minutes with JJ, Stackhouse and Bogans, all seasoned veterans. I would think it unlikely that ATL would take that deal straight away, but if nothing better comes across their table, it's better than losing Smith to free agency for nothing. Humphries is a reasonably priced rebounder.

I doubt any deal that would happen would just be Humphries, Brooks, and a draft pick for Smith. I'm pretty sure 25 of the 30 teams in the league could beat that offer. There has to be more teams involved in this scenario, with a center going to the Hawks. The only thing that works in the Nets' favor is that they could be one of the few teams in the league willing to pay him near-max, and maybe Josh and his agent are pushing the Nets behind the scenes. He does have the leverage in the situation, he could straight up just leave the Hawks empty-handed. Speculation of course, but that's the only way I could see this actually happening. Houston could give the Hawks a more attractive offer than Brooklyn. But Morey might not want to commit near max money to Smith, whereas the Nets wouldn't care since they're essentially locked in to their team for the next couple seasons.

I forgot which reporter of the Nets said so but I believe we have a few deals set up to acquire a certain player or two to them throw at Atlanta. Essentially Billy has a few offers he's currently showing Atlanta.

Really? Didn't see that. Then whomever they're trying to get in a deal has to be a big, because I don't see why Atlanta would want someone like BG from the Bobcats.

We don't have what it takes to get him, and honestly, I don't think he helps that dramatically.

It does but not as much as Millsap would whom i prefer. Josh Smith is an excellent defender which we need. He improves our D and on offense he has to be guarded unlike Evans so our offense would improve there as well. he is also a beter pick and roll target for Deron. I think he would improve us a lot.

That said he is also a very stupid player and therefore he would not put us over the top. We would be on par with the Knicks and Pacers but still not good enough to beat the Heat and also this will be our last major move for the next 3 years so we will basically accept being a perennial 2nd round exit if we make this trade.

For all those scoffing, the market for Smith is not huge. Not with him wanting a 5 year max he does not deserve and him being a FA this summer. The Hawks have wanted ATL native Brooks for a while so i would not be shocked at all that this gets done.

I agree with everything you said CW, but I actually think if Josh became a Net, he wouldn't be the same player he is in Atlanta. He wouldn't be pressured on the Nets to take those outrageously bad perimeter shots he has the propensity of taking, and he wouldn't be the focal point of the offense. He would solely have to be a factor on defense, and on the fast break and in PnR. At the absolute worst, he takes a jumpshot at the end of the shotclock when a play breaks down. But that should be about it.

I get that aspect, but like you said, Josh is just a borderline stubborn player. I dont think he puts us over the top while giving up tons of assets (picks/Brooks). Ultimately, Millsap makes more sense and his impact wouldnt be far off from Josh's.

Coaching change would also help, but that wont be happening this season.

I can agree with this but it seems to me that taking bad shots is something he cannot help at times. Kind of hoping Blatche goes in the deal BTW. He started the year really well but he is not reacting well to a bench role lately. He needs to start for a team somewhere.

But if they dealt him, I think the Nets would get worse as a whole. He's basically their best player coming off the bench. If he's gone, the Nets aren't as good. No one on the bench will produce without him in the second unit. His presence alone helps create opportunities for everyone else.

I agree that Millsap makes more sense but i do not think he can be had. Net Income hinted that Millsap was who they wanted but Utah is not as enamored with Brooks as Atlanta seems to be. We have no assets to trade for Millsap who actually has a bigger market than Smith imo

Also the one thing Smith has that Millsap would not bring to our team is passion and emotion. We have a group of totally nice guys that will never beat the chest and scream and just do those types of things that hype up a crowd. The way the Nets have been selling out their arena, there is no reason they (the crowds) should have such little energy in games. We are a boring borderline unwatchable team. We need a guy that can pump his chest and hype the crowd and give us some nasty (thanks Pop), and give us some highlight plays. Millsap does not bring that.

Deron low key guy

JJ SUPER low key guy that teammates say they had to force to open up and talk

Wallace plays hard and is capable of having a highlight play or two but he is also a nice quiet guy

Reggie is a scrappy player but there is nothing exciting there

Lopez is a nerd. One of the most boring players in the NBA

Smiths brings an edge to this team that is lacking

Only if the Suns are willing to give him that max. We will see how it plays out. It's not like i am dying for Smith. An upgrade at PF would be nice but he does not put us over the top or help us beat the Heat

Agreed, it all depends on if the team's that's trading for him is willing to pay the money to keep him. I think this actually helps the Nets in terms of match-ups with the Heat because the Nets would actually have a player that could at least keep up with LeBron. But in all, having a better PF that can actually finish and pass the ball makes the Nets much better. We'll see what happens.

Forgot about this, but another reason why the Nets could possibly be a factor is Adidas. Smith is one of their flagship athletes, and being in Brooklyn would probably raise his profile. Adidas is one of the Nets' sponsors, and probably would like to have one of their bigger clients in the number one U.S. market. Similar to how during the Dwightmare there was speculation Adidas was pulling strings and were going to give Dwight a huge deal if he came to NY. Just a theory, but there could be some validity to it.

02-11-2013, 10:07 AM
I think it'd improve the spacing by a lot solely because Smith is somewhat of a threat from the perimeter. Opens up the lane for Johnson and Williams to drive into the paint. Post defense, one of the Nets' issues, would improve because as we all now Smith is an elite paint defender. Also, his athleticism would allow the Nets to be more effective in transition, because right now, they're horrible in the fastbreak lol.

Whenever we play the Hawks, I love giving Smith the long jumpers, he's a horrible long 2 and 3 point shooter, but somewhere in his mind he thinks he's great from there. He has an all around game, but he's not a very efficient scorer, he's like Joe Johnson or JR smith type, he'll get you 16-17 points, but he's going to take 15-16 shots to do so.

You guys would have been much better off with Lopez imo. He really hasn't been soft at all this year and he will be even stronger next year. You still would have been able to tank with him. Nets did it for years but he's proven without a shadow of a doubt he is a franchise center. I like Vucevic though maybe someday he will be as good as Lopez, not likely but possible but he will need to be paid.

Yea Lopez has the edge of course but he has been in the league longer so he is a few years ahead of the game then vuc .. I think Vuc deff could be just as good as pez I mean he is already a better rebounder and his scoring has been great lately and yea we will have to pay him eventually but it leaves us more flexible till then ... and we got assets like afflalo and Harrington that will be nice trade pieces in time especially for contending team ... this trade was better for the magic than people think by 2014 seasons end we will have had 2 years to suck and have two lottery type picks some tradable assets and a crapload of cap room for the big free agency in 2014

I understand what you mean though about us still sucking with Lopez like the nets have before this year but Lopez has also never played this good and this consistently good so it's hard to compare I won't lie I have thought at times what it would be like if we took Lopez Brooks and whatever else

But if they dealt him, I think the Nets would get worse as a whole. He's basically their best player coming off the bench. If he's gone, the Nets aren't as good. No one on the bench will produce without him in the second unit. His presence alone helps create opportunities for everyone else.

Btw, if the Suns offered Gortat, this would be over lol. He'd be a good fit in ATL.

This is just what the Nets need. A top class defensive player who wouldn't be a liability on the other side of the ball. And, Smith could join the team and not have the pressure to be their best player. He could just focus on what he does best and get a couple of dunks and mid range jumpers during the game. Not forcing shots but getting them in the flow of the offense. And having a top class athlete in the lineup wouldn't hurt either.

I also think this is just what the Hawks need too. But not what they're getting back in the trade. I've thought for a while that Horford needed to play the PF position exclusively. And, with sending Smith away, that is exactly what they would be able to do. Horford becomes the unopposed franchise player and they work through him on the offensive side where he continues to grow his game. Hawks want that young center and continue the rebuild after clearing more cap.

Wouldn't be interesting if Dwight Howard changed his mind after the year (after getting mentally and physically heathly with all of that drama behind him) and Al Horford become part of the Hawks front line? Howard would be 1st in the pecking order again and it would be his team and Horford could get his points and rebounds while allowing Howard to do the dirty work defensively.

The nets have a all star point guard, all star center, star shooting guard , lock down defender in wallace , rebounders in humphries/ evans. Bench scoring in Brooks. the nets should be good enough to stay put, but I really dont get why their not doing well

Lindsey Hunter can push to get Andrey Blatche he has no power at all in terms to trades and acquisitions. Lindsey Hunter is a coach. I don't know how things are ran up in New York but in Phoenix the coaches job is to coach players not making decisions in terms of staff and players. And our FO has always been high on Shump as a matter of fact they were going to acquire a pick on draft night to draft him in the 20's before New York took him at 17 if I'm not mistaken.

who said Lindsey is getting Blatche? you lose Gortat b/c he obviously wants out. I just was trying to make the deal reasonable for you other than looking like another cap move. All trades here are hypothetical. Your GM isn't exactly big shakes either. BTW here in New York, you have Stephen A. Smith (yeh I know no one is shutting him up) he saids the reason the Suns want Iman is b/c of Lindsey's evaluation of him calling him the best on ball defender in the NBA. (not that I think that of him)

It's a misnomer that the Hawks need something in return for Josh Smith. Even with his cap hold, the Hawks have roughly 25 million to spend in free agency. If they just let him go, you can add around 40 million in space so the offer has to be specialized to meet our needs.

It's very unlikely he gets dealt this month. More or less the Broussards and Vecseys trying to get hits. 70 million is all other teams can offer and the Hawks can match or beat that rather easily.

Why would the Suns want to "release youth". They're trading their best player and a solid young guy for pieces that literally won't help them at all down the road.

You can take this for what it's worth, but to can add another team with interest. (though I don't see anything coming from it)


The San Antonio Spurs are among the teams that have shown interest in acquiring Josh Smith from the Atlanta Hawks, according to a source.

Hawks general manager Danny Ferry previously spent time with the Spurs.

I think this just means Ferry is actually looking to trade Smith and have the Spurs fake a trade rumor to help boost the other team's offers. I doubt Spurs is actually interested and if they were, Hawks won't accept anything but Leonard, in which the Spurs will not trade. So I just see this as friendly organizations helping one another by putting more interest in Smith out there.

As I said, this trade won't happen and believe Spurs is just doing Ferry a favor by giving more interest to Smith for another team to give more. Why should we trade him for Jackson? As of right now, Smith > Leonard. I know everyone has love affairs with younger players and potential but that is the truth, and of course Ferry isn't going to trade Smith for peanuts when he would rather have the cap space in the summer. Aim high or don't even worry about trading him.

I think the Jazz did the same thing. Frankly, if you want people to have interest in your player/client, say the Spurs are interested...
