Atlanta will probably want to hang onto him unless they get a bargain in return. Troy Murphy (a possible 18 & 10 whose contract is average to high) is a damn good offer. When you throw in Pietrus, it becomes a bargain.




Make the Hawks front office believe that :wink:

I'll leave that to Chris Mullin. Just seeing the names in the trade should do the trick.

Like I've said before, we the Warriors' fans think more of our players than others do! That is the case with every team's fans!

The Hawks will likely view Smith as their future star and Murphy as a weak white boy

But GMs are also aware of the huge importance of proving yourself.

Right now, Josh Smith is 11 & 6 in starting minutes. Troy Murphy is 15 & 10 in the same amount (with less touches, too). Smith is a long-term gamble whose currently making all his money on potential. The chance to grab Murphy (whose currently a better player than Smith) and keep the same amount of potential (by aquiring Pietrus) should be more than enough to make the Hawks consider the offer.

Hey, same as me. Am I a closet Hawks fan? :wink:

Nah, really, Josh Smith won't become a star unless he develops an outside shot (something he really needs) and better handles.

He was bombing in some 2 threes a game for the last month of the season! He had not made many at all before the last 15 games or so and then he made so many! A guy that improves that fast is really interesting!

But, see, the last month and a half don't mean anything! Dunleavy's proven that to us time and time again!
