They should but I don't see any team stupid enough to take his huge contract.

Yes they should, but who wants him after this season on that kind of contract.. Rashard Lewis all over again.

Of course they should. But they won't cause they can't. I always find it funny when teams give out huge contracts that they were skeptical about in the first place to certain and then start to realize it was a bad idea within the first year or so, so then they try trading him. The same thing has happened with Baron, Arenas, Vince, and Brand. They already had a bright future with Horford and Smith, and they knew Joe Johnson wasn't going to be the difference between a championship or not. Such a dumb move.

Right now. But isn't he like 30 or something? They signed him 125 mil for 6 years right? So yeah he is gonna decline like crazy when his maxed contract comes to an end.

I think Horford would be much a better 1st option/ franchise player. He's already better than JJ he's averaging 16/10/4 with great defence as the 3rd option playing out of postion, he would be a better leader, he's younger and cheaper. But JJ is not as bad as those guys he was putting up 21 5 5 46% fg with good defence last year this year's he's a bit worse cause of the injury but still an all star that would be a great second option maybe Orlando or New Jersey would take him maybe the Hornets.

He's 29 years 1 to 4 a bit overpaid in 5 and 6 he will decline and at that point its the worse cause its the most money. Over the next few years he won't decline that much he's 6'8 240 he has a great jumpshot can handle the ball and is a good passer none thats going away.

Okay declining is not the right word, what I meant to say was, he isn't going to be worth what he's making in the 5th and 6th year of his contract. So if they are going to want to trade this guy, the sooner the better right?

Not with him and his Rashard Lewis-esque contract.
