Pacers trade: Danny Granger, dunleavy, rush, 1st round pick.
Pacers get: Josh smith, Gerald Wallace
Hawks trade: Josh Smith
Hawks get: Granger, 1st rounder
Bobcats trade: Gerald wallace
Bobcats get: Dunleavy, Rush
free agents to round out roster and thats possible a 50+ win team.
Gerald Wallace is better at defence than danny and a better rebounder. josh smith will help hibbert and an upgrade over Mcroberts
Hawks get a star back and a first round pick
bobcats get a productive expiring in dunleavy and would be a better fit with them while also getting a great backup in rush and a future 1st. bobcats wanted to move him for salary releif but also wanted talent back. they got it here.
Wouldn't it be more feasible if the 1st went to Charlotte? Otherwise they'd have little interest IMO. Atlanta gets a very nice deal.
Heavily favors the pacers, atlanta and charlotte wont go for this.
I love Danny, but this trade sucks for the Hawks. Smith's versatility is the biggest reason why the Hawks are as successful as they are. Replacing him with Danny just gives Atlanta a volume scorer that isn't consistent in any other area. Who do they start at the 4 after this trade?
