If we sign him to an offer sheet, it would force Atlanta's hand. They can't afford to lose him for nothing, and if they match the offer, so what?


Dude..what are YOU talking about? What cap space??? Do you mean if they just release Deng and Gordon from their restricted status and THEN offer Smith a contract?? I don't even know if that would work lol Fill me in...please!!

Wow, nevermind. I just checked it again and we are less than $5 million under the cap right now with Rose's contract on the books. Definitely not enough for Smith, my bad. I'm not quite sure why I thought we had more space than that.
