I wouldn't trade for smith if they included a 1st rounder and all we sent was hendo.

Yeah I would for that.

I wouldn't discredit the rumor. If I'm correct, I think Charlotte was rumored as a Josh Smith fan before he went to Detroit.

I would like the move only if we don't have to give up MKG. Hendo or Zeller would def be fine. Josh Smith would help solidify Charlotte as a legit Top3 in the East; well at least on paper. I'd play him off the bench tho.

Hopefully these articles and rumors have been made up out of thin air.

See why JJ is mad at you.

I had a strong feeling you wouldn't understand what I say saying, or it would go over your head.. So here is a screenshot I took.

I'd love to add J-Smoove as our starting 4.  It's well documented that Detroit has him playing out of position at the 3 (with Monroe and Drummond as his bigs), that he's a natural power forward, and that he's not a good outside shooter.  He's a slasher type, a finisher, great in transition, and needs playmakers to get him the ball. 

 

I think he'd be dominant playing the 4 next to Big Al, and with primary playmakers like Kemba and Lance to get him the ball in a position to score down-low.  His contract is significant, but I'd take him in a heartbeat for any combination involving Henderson, Bismack, and/or Cody.  If you compare the contracts, those numbers are very workable.

 

Josh Smith - $13.5 million, 3 years remaining

 

Gerald Henderson - $6 million, 2 years remaining

Bismack Biyombo - $3.9 million, 1 year remaining (1 club option)

Cody Zeller - $4 million, 3 years remaining (2 club options)

TOTAL:  $13.9 million / year

 

Another possibility would be to include Marvin Williams' $7 million (2 years) in place of Cody/Bizmack, though that would have to wait until December due to Williams' freshly signed contract.

 

This team is built to win NOW and also in the long-run.  The above deal sacrifices no long-term harm (retain MKG and Vonleh) yet still improve at the 4.  We'd have to find a bargain basement backup center but that's easy.

 

1.) Kemba Walker (Brian Roberts)

2.) Lance Stevenson (Gary Neal, P.J. Hairston)

3.) Michael Kidd-Gilchrest (Jeffrey Taylor)

4.) Josh Smith (Marvin Williams, Noah Vonleh)

5.) Al Jefferson (TBD)

 

On paper, that lineup could contend for the Eastern Conference championship, IMO.  Although I still think Jeff Green (Celtics) may be the better target available.  Better defender, better shooter, natural 3 with the length of a 4, cheaper at $9.5 million / 2 years.  Either way, I really hope MJ makes one more splash this offseason.  I think this lineup is one trade away from being REALLY good this year and for years to come.

I know what you're talking about. I can see it when quoting your post. I'm saying it doesn't hurt to cite the source(s). You know like how they teach you in Eng101? Lol

Just ask JJ.

I did cite the source, unless you're a troll I feel extremely sorry for you. 

 

A direct link to the article isn't citing the source?

I stopped reading when the writer said he'd trade MKG for Smith in a "heartbeat".

 

I would not mind Smith on the Hornets' roster. But if you trade MKG you have to be certain that you are getting a player in return that makes the team legit championship contenders. I do not believe Josh Smith is that guy.
