Atlanta Hawks Would be Wise to Trade Josh Smith to Brooklyn Nets
The Brooklyn Nets are onto something, but we don’t know what. It has to be one of two things: they’re trying to bring in literally every halfway decent star in the NBA or they’re trying to become the Atlanta Hawks of the Atlantic Division. We’ve come to these conclusions because the latest NBA rumors suggest the Nets are trying to acquire Hawks forward Josh Smith before the trade deadline on Feb. 21.
The Nets already have Joe Johnson, who was the Hawks’ other star before departing for the Big Apple this past offseason. The Hawks are still relevant–they’re currently sixth in the Eastern Conference standings–but Smith knows his time in Atlanta is almost up. He’ll be a free agent at the end of the year, so the Hawks would be wise to get rid of him now because he’s wanted out of Atlanta for quite some time and he’ll definitely walk at the end of the season if allowed.
Of course, you’ve got another Dwight Howard situation on your hands if Smith doesn’t agree to re-sign with the team to which he’s traded. Whether or not he would actually help the Nets this season or next is irrelevant because if he wants too much money or doesn’t want to play in Brooklyn, he won’t be there next season, either. The Hawks should probably move him if at all possible just so they’ll get something in return but despite Brooklyn’s interest, that’s a lot easier said than done.
