Talk is buzzing right now about the Hawks are offering Shaq the MLE for 2 years, wanting to slide Horford to the PF and thinking about trading Josh Smith to semi-makeover the team. Otherwise really they are just bringing back the same team as last year and having paid Joe Johnson 6/119. We have talked about how this team needs a big and I have never bought that it must be a 5 man because I think Ibaka can grow into that and now we have Cole and BJ (probably more of a 4, but has the size) as well. Josh Smith to me would be an excellent addition to this roster in that he is 24 (25 dec), has experience, huge athleticism, very good defender, hard competitor. This past season he set career highs in FG% (stopped shooting 3's), stls, rebounds and assists. I dont know what it would take to get him from Atl but I would be very intrigued. Cant imagine what a combination of J-Smoove and Iblacka would look like on the defensive end. Thoughts?
