Re: Hawks sign Forward/Center Joe Smith
Joe Smith got his fair market value.
He is an older veteran and he already got his big contract.
His body could break down at any point. No point for any team, especially in this environment, on giving him a huge contract when he could break down or they need to develop a younger player.
He has maybe a couple good years left, and then he can go into the front office or coaching. He seems like a pretty smart guy and seems to have good character.
