This is good!
If the Rockets land Josh Smith, they probably wont be able to sign Dwight, which is good for LA.

Not if Smith, and Dwight take a pay cut to play together. Which probably wouldn't happen.

Would you take a pay cut to do your job? I wouldn't. The only people that take pay cuts are guys who are bigger than the game, like Lebron, and you don't even see that often, Dwight is going to max out wherever he plays.

The Suns "seem to be bowing out" of the Smith derby, according to Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld (via Twitter). I still wouldn't rule out a late push from Phoenix, but it doesn't seem as if the club is the frontrunner at the moment.


The Suns are out.

I haven't done the calculation, but i really doubt that they (Houston) are able to get Smith and still have enough cap-room to sign Dwight.
I guess it's possible, but they'd have to give up Asik and/or Lin and some of their young guys.

Hawks, Bucks seriously talking on Josh Smith deal, sources tell Y! Monta Ellis, Ekpe Udoh among players discussed for Smith, Devin Harris.

@SekouSmithNBA
Hawks are exhausting all options to ship Josh Smith to the Western Conference. Willing to wait until the final hour to get it done.



ESPN.com's Chris Broussard's sources insist that the Bucks aren't trading Monta Ellis to Atlanta as part of a Smith deal (Twitter link). I could see the Hawks being intrigued by a package that includes Ekpe Udoh, expiring contracts, and picks.




Adrian Wojnarowski@WojYahooNBA
Milwaukee, Phoenix emerging as frontrunners for Josh Smith deal, league sources tell Y! Sports. Boston still a "darkhorse," one source says.

Pau is better than anything ATL is getting offered.

I expect the suns to get him even though i'm sure he wont resign there. I have a feeling the suns actually think he would stay there. Unless the suns get another good player they have no chance and they would have to trade a ton to get smith so not sure what the logic is.

If they trade for smith then yes they could easily but I dont think the hawks woud want asik and his massive backloaded contract.

not necessarily. if they trade for smith there would be a cap hold bringing them to around 45-48 million in salaries. Dwight would have to take 13 million a year. it depends who they offer in the trade.

I dont see any way how they would end up with 45-48 next year. They might gain one mill form the trade with him. Right now they are at 40 mill and Im think they will increase smith's payroll a bit but he will not get max. If they give him max they would be crazy Houston is not a big spending team and they would rather let him leave then pay him max. Smith shouldnt even get a pay raise. He really hasnt done much this season to say he is a max player.

josh is making 13 million right now. he's going to want a raise from that. they would have to get rid of most of their contracts in favor of expirings.

Miggs is going to be in before the ban since he keeps posting the same thing over and over again in different threads.
