    It does actually make sense. Hate to say it but I'd take it right now.

    "a three-way trade could be secured, featuring two big name players. Boston is looking to secure Smith. The Mavericks would get Pierce and save salary cap space. The Hawks would get Dallas rejects".

    Why can't we send Atlanta some of our rejects?

    Because they don't want Pierce??

    Re: an actual rumor

    I think this deal would have to wait until after July 1st so Smith could be signed and traded. At that point PP would have his 15.3 guaranteed.

    Doesn't seem like it would save the Mavs any cap space at all or make any sense for them unless they wanted to swap out Marion for Pierce and think that lateral move would make them a contender. No shot at Howard with that 15.3 on the books.

    Re: an actual rumor

    The best way to get Smith would be to send Pierce to a Western Conf contender for an exp contract like Caron Butler/Willie Green from the Clips or Richard Jefferson from the Warriors that go to the Hawks. The Hawks then get an asset like Eric Bledsoe or Draymond Green.

    Smith gets signed for like 4 years 52-60 million and come to Boston.

    any deal with the Clippers would ideally also include KG swapped our for DeAndre Jordan.

    The Hawks won't be making any moves until Howard decides his future. It seems like there is almost no chance he goes to Atlanta. Even bringing on 12 million in contracts for Smith the Hawks will still have a bunch of cap space. They can sign Bynum, move Horford to his natural PF spot and have 3-4 exciting young guards. They have two picks in the teens and would just need health from Bynum and a really good SF to make some noise in the East.

    Agree.  Why would Dallas want Pierce if they have to pay him $15.3 million?  It really doesn't make sense.  Not if they really want Howard.

    Not sure where this would leave Doc & the C's. I'm guessing Doc isn't a big fan because every time I heard someone ask him about Smith last year, he would just roll his eyes.

    Re: an actual rumor

    I don't really want Josh Smith.

    It seems buying out PP is what they intend to do...but - I like this trade for 3 teams:

    OKC gets Butler

    Clips get KG and Perk

    BOS gets Jordan and Bledsoe

     

    Maybe we swap picks with OKC, then trade Rondo to Utah for Millsap.

    Bledsoe, Bradley, Green, Millsap and Jordan

    Terry, Lee, Shabazz, Bass and Sully

     

    Fun team!

    That trade won't work before July 1. Right now and until June 30, Josh Smith can't be traded because he has an expiring contract.

    If the Celts and Hawks are going to do that trade then that means Pierce gets his 15.3m. 

    The Celts only have until June 30 to waive Pierce.




    There could be two trades.  One between Dallas and Boston before June 30th.  Boston gets a trade exception.  After July 1, there is a 3-way trade.  It will get very complicated though.

    Right.  Smith's game is ugly at best.
