Rumors the Hornets might be interested in Josh Smith

The only guy who I'd like us to realistically trade Detroit for is Monroe. Smith is a fair player, but I think MKG is more valuable at SF, especially if MKG can add to the offense side; and I'd rather not see Smith at PF.

Anyway this would be a big Buzzkill (pun intended).

We took on Ben Gordon's even more horrendous contract and hit the jackpot. Top 10 pick and the space to sign Lance Stephenson.

 

The only way this move makes sense for us is if Detroit attaches an incentive like a future first on to it simply as a salary dump. I'd almost be willing to get something done if that were the case, but according to the parameters outlined by the article, absolutely no way.

oh if they added a great pick in the mix of course

 

but I thought the proposed trade was MKG for Smith- that would be asinine

We have no track record of how Rich Cho will operate with this roster as an up and coming contender, but he strikes me as the type of GM that is always looking to collect future assets and to this point has yet to trade away any players on rookie deals however flawed those young players he picked may be.

 

Like I said when a Rudy Gay deal was suggested, Josh Smith is one of those guys suggested every year for a team like Charlotte and every year it does not happen.

 

The ONLY way he fits with this team is he's a poster boy for our current acquisition strategy of acquiring talented yet flawed players and coaching toward maximizing their strengths and minimizing their flaws. That's it.

I would hold onto MKG. I think Josh Smith is a good player but I think MKG has yet to reach his ceiling so we could end up loosing on the trade. Also I would still keep Henderson until PJ has proven himself. It's always better to have depth opposed to having a great starting 5 with no depth. Right now we have a good amount of depth in the backcourt and if we do that trade we will loose it.

I'll sob if we do this, though I'm sure this is 100% speculation by the author.

 

His deal is absolute poo, he is under contract through 2017-18 at $13.5 million per. That is the same yearly salary as Jefferson. It would annihilate our cap space for the next three years for a player I wouldn't want at $6 million per.

I'm admittedly not the biggest mkg fan, however having said that I think j smoove would be a bad fit on this roster.
