@WojYahooNBA: Josh Smith has agreed to a four year, $56 million deal with the Detroit Pistons, league sources tell Y! Sports.

Detroit might not be the most happiest place on Earth, but I bet he's happy to be out of that "worst sports town" in America.

good pick up. thought they were going to go Monroe PF Drummond C or they can just move Josh to SF. They really need to give Drummond some more minutes

Considering their front line consists of Drummond and Monroe, this is very interesting.

I think Lionel Hollins would've been better for them & all those bigs specifically than Cheeks, but oh well.

HAHAHAHAHAH I'm so glad he's not going to Houston, where's your so called "super team" now Dwight? Houston will be another first round exit.

Yeah, as it stands right now, Houston's not looking too scary. They've improved obviously, but not enough to worry the Heat too much.

No kidding, going for that Pacers height and strenght. Still if they even develop slightly they can be a playoff team in 2014 easily, all they need are some guards to handle the ball and throw it in the air so the bigs can catch it.

 

Probably overpaid a little on Smith, but sometimes you have to.

 

I wonder if Houston promised Howard that they would try and get him Smith.

Especially when you're an unattractive team and location.

Wouldn't that be interesting? Could make for some potential earlier drama than even expected.

From one town with little expectation to a town with zero expectations.

 

Good match for a lackluster player like Josh Smith.

Josh Smith Working With Rasheed Wallace On Midrange Shots, Post Moves

 

Shouldn't he have already worked on all this a long time ago?

Yep.  Good for him to be doing it now.
