    Default Report: Josh Smith Will Not Sign Extension With Hawks

    Josh Smith plans to explore free agency at the end of next season, when he will be eligible to sign a five-year deal.

    Smith is limited to a three-year extension if he re-signs with the Hawks before June 30

    When West expires, would we be able to offer Smith money?

    we have money to offer, but i think it won't be nearly enough. He'll get overpaid.

    We've already gone this route. Let's not do it again. We already have Lance and Gerald Green. Yes, they may be cleaning up their acts, but let's not repeat the JO era...please.

    I don't see where they would get cap space for it either way.

    they could sign and trade him for Hibbert, I think the Hawks would do it in a blink
    but i think i'd watch far less Pacers games if that happened

    I'd be interested-ish in him if we wouldn't have to massively overpay to get him. And he's not the kind of guy I want to overpay for, so, no.

    How would signing Smith recreate the JO era?

    Good question, actually. Is there some kind of legal trouble he's had that I've missed? Unless by JO you mean Jim O'Brien, and this is a reference to jacking up three-pointers at every opportunity. Which is a thing.

    I have no idea, it's Smith meant to have knee issues from the time the Pacers get him?

    How would we go all-in on Smith? We won't be a FA player.

    Smith will be a FA in 2014....at that time Granger will expire, along with others. We'll only have $34.5 million in salary - though I'm sure we'll have others.

    I don't think the Hawks will let Smith walk....they'll at least trade and get some asset(s) in return.

    Pass. He's talented....but I think that some Team is going to offer him an OVERPAID Near MAX Contract offer...which is more than enough reason for me to say no.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Maybe an interesting player for Dallas. He's not coming here because he very likely doesn't want to come here and I suspect management doesn't want him because of what B&G mentioned earlier in this topic aswell as having to sacrifice more then they will probably be willing to (like Danny).

    I don't see how we're going to have the money to get it done, but it would be an all-in type of move. This would be a swing for the fences type of move. I could get behind it and really get excited for it. I think there may be better options than Smith as far as his fit within our team identity, but he would make our team more dynamic on both ends.

    I think that if the Pacers make a move to spend $$$ for a PF in the 2013-2014 Offseason...it will be to make an offer to Milsap...not Josh Smith.

    The Pacers have shown interest in Milsap before and there are far less question marks when it comes to being a coachable Player that won't butt heads with the Coaching Staff and FO.

    I'd love to have him but I doubt we can afford him.

    Josh Smith is a really really versatile and fun to watch player, but he doesn't fit our style of play. I know what he's capable of; I know that he's a great defender, great rebounder, outstanding shot blocker, good ball handler/passer, physical, can help with the scoring... But he's a knucklehead. Look beyond the stats and highlights. It's easy to see that he settles for jumpers and takes more threes than he probably should. He's also not really mature yet. I think he'd be a good #2 option next to a vet vocal superstar - like Kobe or Wade, guys who would make him better mentally and more focused. So yeah, he doesn't fit in our team

    And well, lets face it, we can't really sign him unless we dump one of Hill, Granger or Hibbert and even if we do find some magical way of doing that we're gonna need to kiss George or Granger goodbye at some point.

    Meh too far down the line right now. Let's get through this season and see how things go. Obviously keep an open mind on potential moves, but making a bid on a 2014 FA really is pointless to discuss at the moment. What if West puts up 16 and 8 this season along side Hibbert getting his? No reason for Smith then.

    If Atlanta decides along the way to let Josh walk, I would love to see a West, Tyler/Pender, DJA or whatever trade for him. JSmith, if he bought into Franks way of playing, is an almost unstopable 4. IMO, he would be an even better 3. His speed, ball handling ability and decent 3 ball would open the middle for Roy. He and Danny could rotate the 3 and 4 position as needed and/or give us a 3 man rotation along with PGeorge to be awesome, if we should find a true PF in IM or Plumlee. If we have a player/players that we could trade for JS, we would be silly to not go for it. That kind of ability just doesn't come along every day.
