I'm Just wanting some perspective here. I want him back in training camp really bad next year. I think he would make the team no questions asked. He really seemed to me to be the physical presence we needed down low. Sure he is young and thin, but I could see him being a good tandem with Hibbert, or even next to him.
He is worlds better than Solo and I think that move may have cost us a few games this year and possibly a playoff series. Maybe I rate him too high but I just really thought his athleticism and strength was really missing in our front court this year. I was upset that a division foe that beat our team into the ground when we had JOB got him. I just don't see the Hawks letting him go if they trade Smith.
Any thoughts? Or who could we reasonably get that won't break the bank that would upgrade our front court?
