Rick Sund Talks Trade Scenario's 01-31-11

Atlanta Hawks GM Rick Rund talks about what he is looking for in possible trade scenarios, why the Hawks are a better team this year, and even compares them to the San Antonio Spurs.

File under "incredible." For players averaging at least 35 minutes a game, Al Horford leads the league in shooting from 16-23 feet at 48%. Guess who is last? Actually don't guess. Just know. Because you already know. Yes, Josh Smith at 28%. In an attempt to kill any positive about Al Horford drilling, Josh attempts 2.9 of these shots a game. Horford 2.2. This sums up something. I am not sure what, but definitely something.

Josh Smith in a blog post talking about his all-star snub. Who knew Josh had a blog? (HT Coco via twitter.)

"4. Josh Smith, Atlanta. Speaking of putting it altogether, a la Bosh. Smith abandoned the three (for the most part) and took over the paint. His field goal percentage is outrageous (56 percent, compared with 45 percent career), his rebounding has been stellar and he has regained the indefatigable blocking spirit missing from the soulless but successful '08-09 campaign. It's like the exclamatory Smith from Atlanta's lean years has found a way to exist within the framework of team success. And it is GLORIOUS." and "12. Joe Johnson, Atlanta. That Johnson's best pro season has coincided with Atlanta's leap up the leaderboard is not coincidence. J.J. has basically been a more gunner-y, less stopper-ish Roy. One could argue he belongs way up this list (like, say, alongside Roy), but Atlanta's backcourt is giving up as many open looks as the frontcourt (anchored by Smith and stout Al Horford), and while Mike Bibby and Jamal Crawford are leading suspects J.J. is not immune from rotating late."

If you needed any more evidence Tom Ziller knows what he is talking about, here is his early MVP list. I could not agree more with his assessment of both Hawks' on this list.

Josh Smith has 33 rebounds in the last two games. From February 17th to March 6th of last season (10 games), he had 32. Last year's season high for boards was 15 which he has now surpassed in back to back games. The light may finally have flipped on....and stayed on.

Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith has two personal goals this season—to make the All-Star Game and to be selected to the NBA's All-Defensive team.

The Sporting News, The Basline. What no three point contest winner? Dude is obviously not a dreamer. However, I would take either one of these honors for Smith.

If Josh Smith stopped taking jump shots and had this personality all the time, he would be one of the biggest stars in the league.
