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.
