How would you guys feel about that deal? I'm a Hawks fan, Josh is a guy with all-star talent, and got snubbed the last 2 seasons. He is extremely frustrating but exciting to watch. If he went to SA and had Popovich coach him, I'm confident he'd be one of the best players in the entire league. He has way to much leeway in Atlanta, and hasn't progressed like he should. It's a shame that he has wasted his career in Atlanta, but he is only 27 and has a lot left in the tank.
Ya I'd love to get josh smith, but not at the expense of Kawhi. He is just too valuable to our future and pop LOVES him and all the things he can do. Kahwi is single handedly the reason the spurs have returned to being an elite defensive team. Honestly I'd be more ok with trading ginobili at this point Ina deal for smith, but I don't think that would be a fair trade for the hawks, and Danny ferry is no fool.
