    In response to rameakap's comment:

    If Ferry decides to trade Smith the Celtics could go after him as well and team him with Rondo in the future.

    Green, Terry, Bass, Melo and future picks for Smith and Harris would be a great deal for us. Atlanta would probably require us to swap Terry for Avery though.



    This would scenario would be my top, pick. If we managed to get Smith along with another year out of KG and Pierce and Rondo and assuming we kept Bradley, it would be a defense for the ages. Not a bad offense either.

    But isn't one of your premise is Smith want to team up with Howard?  How would Smith do that coming to the Celtics?  We are not going under cap anytime soon or when Howard is a FA after this season.  And Lakers are not sending Howard to the Celtics, I don't see that happening either.

    If we got Smith we would just have to hold our breathe that he resigns with us and wants to play w/ Rondo. I mean how many teams out there could get both him and Howard this summer? Could any of them?

    Howard could do several things if Smith were not on the Hawks anymore:

    1.) Resign with LA for the max over 5 years

    - this would make me think he's scared about his back, he seems miserable in LA and they won't compete with Kobe and Nash being 35/40 and no picks unless they can get a steal of a trade return for Gasol.

    2.) Sign with Dallas for 4 years at the max, leave some $ on the table to find a happier place. Collison-Mayo-Dirk-Howard would be better than the '14 Lakers but prob not better than OKC, the Heat or even the Clippers.

    3.) Sign with LA for 2 years, getting more $ over those 2 years than he would the first two of a 4 year max deal elsewhere. Being in LA for a short period (this would show that his back was ok) he could  try and win with Kobe/Nash and a new coach then dip to a team with lots of cap space and his friends in 2015 or hope LA gets guys with all the space they'd have then.



    I don't like that Josh Smith,  he is too much like Rondo,  inconsistent from game to game.  His shooting is unbelievably inconsistent.  To have Rondo and Smith in the line-up when they go both go cold could be a nightmare.  What seems the best idea would be a trade for Horford. If we could get him here for this season, things could get really interesting or are you suggesting waiting for Rondo to recover from his injury and do it next season?

    Waiting ten games to see if this team can play without Rondo probably is a good idea since we only have two games without him and everyone is talking like Rondo has held us back.

    Suns have more to offer.

    NBA PM: Phoenix Suns Pursuing Josh Smith

    Phoenix has attractive assets, particularly Marcin Gortat, who could play alongside Al Horford and give the Hawks one of the best frontcourts in the Eastern Conference.




    They do have more to offer, but would Smith sign an extension with them? That could be a deal breaker.
