ATL- BKN

I know potential trades are not to popular here, but when reading the midseason report cards on nba.com I came up with this one.
http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=d3c9644

Brooklyn receives Josh Smith (PF)

Atlanta receives Humpries (PF) & Brooks (SG)

Brooklyn has to include a draft pick or two (first round this year and/or second round 2014), but them receiving Smith is great for their defense. Furthermore, by acquiring Smith they will be able to extend him after this season, making them go way over the luxury tax (which is no problem for Prokhorov).

Atlanta on the other hand will receive a decent PF in Humpries, who has an expiring contract in two seasons (2014), which allows them to pursue a big name in 2014 (like their plan is I guess). Next to Humpries, they receive a good young SG in Brooks, who for this season will take the place of Lou Williams as their scoring guard (starting or from the bench). Maybe then can even include Stevenson (who has a three year contract) to dump his contract (but who could also contribute for the Nets).

The Hawks could get a much

The Hawks could get a much better deal than Humps and Brooks if they were to deal Smith.

I've always thought that this trade, while not in rumors at all, would be beneficial for each team. Phillie would get another Franchise cornerstone, and Big 3 mate, along with Holiday and Bynum, to form a literal Heat killer. Hawks would get a potential star in Evan Turner, at a cheap price, along with Thad Young who will always be a solid, if not above average, PF, and Dalembert, who is a serviceable C, capable of moving Horford to his natural PF spot, and also is on an expiring contract, so Atlanta can choose if they want to retain him after this season. Milwaukee gets a big who can pack the scoring punch that their own bigs severely lack. Win-Win-Win situation.

Philly would get gutted by this trade if both JSmooth and Bynum leave during free agency

Obviously it would be

Obviously it would be somewhat of a risk, but if they go far in the playoffs, which they would, then why wouldn't Smoove and Bynum stay? After all, Philly is a big market team , and could totally afford them.

yea but

Losing Turner would be a tough thing to replace cuz then we have to rely on Swaggy P too much for my liking.
