    Is that you Michael Olowokandi?

    Sounds familiar? I think it's stupid to offer big money to a player, because they had one good showing in the playoffs and/or regular season the year when they're eligible for a new contract.
    What do you think we will have to pay Hibbert to keep him? If you are gonna pay, I would rather pay for a physical center who performs in the playoffs. You have to pay someone.....

    Austin Croshere totally disagrees with you.
    Oh man, that was a horrible resigning...a series of horrible resigns. Bender was another.

    That basically makes us Atlanta with less talent.

    There are 2 types of teams in the NBA. Those with a center and those looking for one.
    So all that matters is having a center? Huh?

    Tell that to the Celtics, Heat or alike. I guess we are better than them. And a big reason why I suggest this is BECAUSE it will help us get Howard. So that solves this as well.
    I don't want to sound condescending, which means to talk down to you by the way

    Problem is Dwight will NEVER sign here, and there is about a 95% chance Gasol resigns with Memphis. That would be just sovling one probelm and creating another one.
    Says who? The reason to trade for Josh Smith is because it will get Dwight TO sign here.

    As we stand now he wouldn't do this. But with His best friend and former AAU teammate Josh Smith, Granger and Paul George? Yes he would.

    It's not about him being in a bigger market. he likes Orlando. It's about him being on a contending team. He has said multiple times that is his main motivation. And a team of Dwight, PG, Josh Smith and Granger does that. Right now.

    And if you recall all those Josh Smith to Orlando rumors before the lockout... Those were them doing so in order to keep Dwight. It was his request to play with Josh according to multiple people.

    So reach out, say that if we sign Josh and have this roster and throw you a max deal will you take it? If so. We put all our eggs in that basket and go for it.
