Default Raps Interested in Joe Smith

Quote:
The Oklahoma City Thunder will attempt to trade veteran forward Joe Smith after adding Nenad Krstic.

The Raptors, Heat, and Magic are three teams believed to be interested in Smith.

He would definitely be a good veteran presence for us off the bench. But who do we trade for him (4.8M)?

If we use Bargnani to get a wing Smith would be a nice player to replace him off the bench.

The only player I'd trade for Smith is Kapono. I don't think OKC is dumb enough to take Kapono's contract though.

He's a nice player off the bench, But as funk said, only if we turn bargs over for a good SF.

We could steal him for someone not useful..if we acquire him it really isn't that bad. He shoots around 47%+ in general a high percentage. Gives you boards and efficient scoring off the bench.

Rumour is that B.C is trying to make a trade with both Wilcox and Smith, since they are both in the trading block.

I really feel Ap and Humphires or Kapono are about to be traded. Also I like Wilcox.

Wilcox and Smith are both expiring deals so that's not too bad. They can help for this season as well. Huge bonus of they can send Kapono the other way too.

So what happens with Bargnani then? If the Raptors get one of these two then his minutes drop significantly. If they get both, he'll never get off the bench this season. I'm hoping Colangelo is more open to dealing him.
