Sources Should Say: Josh Smith Trades that make sense

Now, with the Horford injury, wouldn't the strategy be to bottom out, flip Smith, then get a high pick in a stacked draft?

After watching the Atlanta Hawks somehow sleepwalk through a triple-overtime loss to a Wade-less and LeBron-less Heat team, one thing is abundantly clear: this team cannot progress as currently constructed. A team that was once a young up-and-comer and pushed the ’08 Celtics championship team to seven games is now one of the oldest in the league.

More importantly, it’s also a team that exerts about as much effort as a Beyonce and Jay child-naming brainstorming session. Plainly put, there’s no point keeping this current squad together. You don’t keep a core together for second round exits. Well, you shouldn’t, anyway. So who goes? Joe Johnson is about as movable as a pre-Weight Watchers Charles Barkley. Ditto for Marvin Williams. Horford and Teague are building blocks. That leaves the man who perpetually finds himself at the center of Atlanta-based trade talks, Josh Smith.
