Josh Smith to Washington
What do you all think about Smith to Washington for Okafor and '13 unprotected pick? Washington always seems willing to swap picks for young veterans and I think they are desperate to make playoffs vs drafting another young guy. Atlanta gets Okafor to play center, and dude has been balling as of late. With a top 4 pick, they can add BMac or Bazz to be Teague's backcourt mate, or Noel to learn behind Okafor. Even with Okafor contract, they still will have space to sign a max contract.
Unprotected pick that'll likely be lotto for an unrestricted FA? Nah.
They got rid of the boneheads in Washington and I don't think Smith is the type of guy they are looking for, as proof his recent track record. He is a great player I just don't think he would fit into what Washington is trying to do.
I would think Smith would resign there, but I think you have a point about him being a bonehead. What do you think is the best they can expect for him?
The Wizards look good for next year. Okafor has been great of late, with Nene at PF
Beal / Crawford
Webster / Singleton / Ariza
Nene / Booker
plus they have a lotto pick next year. They have enough assets to trade for Smith (he would have to sign a long term contract with them for the trade to go through)
Won't happen. Wall's up for an extension next year they have a lot of money invested in Nene and Smith thinks he's worth max money. Wizards are content with the lotto pick and Okafor been a double-double machine as of late.
Can we make a rule that when posting a trade opinion you can't title it "X to Portland".
It should be accompanied by something like "X to Portland Trade Proposal".
