I didn't consider that and thats a very good point. But with the cap space they have if they let Smith walk and dont trade him...would they be able to grab a good enough replacement in free agency? I dont think they could.
On the other hand they could also probably trade Smith for some big expirers and draft picks and focus on resigning Al Horford instead...
