WE NEED TO TRY AND GET SMITH AGAIN!!!

Smith Not the Shooter Hornets Want
Darnell Mayberry of THE OKLAHOMAN writes, "The shooter the Hornets are searching for seemingly is already on the roster, just buried at the end of the bench. But Hornets guard J.R. Smith apparently hasn’t done enough of the right things in two seasons to lead Hornets coach Byron Scott to consider using next Wednesday’s NBA Draft on other needs."

http://newsok.com/article/1876038/


sounds to me like the hornets wont hesitate to let him go if they get something they like in the draft!!! or maybe barry will be the shooter they want!!! what yall think? this is just some actually concrete proof that the hornets are willing to trade him, and we already know the spurs are interested in him!

I agree with JamesR about the original trade & if they want Nazr, I wouldn't mind a s&t that would bring PJ Brown back with Smith & Macijauskas...also in a couple of stories out there, Scott has said he wants at least 2 or 3 more "shooters" on the team...IMO, there's still a chance for the original trade to go down.

What killed the deal in the first place?

Is that still a factor?

JR Smith is not the answer for the SF the Spurs really need. He's a 6'6" 2 who can shoot, not a 6'9" 3 who can rebound and defend. Still an interesting option, if only for potential, but this trade hardly helps the Spurs now if anything at all. Just by reading some coments, I often find myself wondering if people can tell the difference between JR Smith and Josh Smith.

They about had the deal done but it was to late to do the trade because it was past the deadline like 10 minutes past it or something like that.

smith would be a great player to have, but a big, quick sf is definately more important. that oughta be their 1st priority, but smith would be terrific if they can't get the sf - his trade value will definately rise after playing next to tim duncan too. pj brown though? i can't understand the love going round here for him.

why not get all 3?

What would it take to get smith, brown AND claxton? Assuming we trade Barry/S&T Nazr and maybe the rights to Scola.

To me, that solves the PF/C problem with Tim in the middle, the backup point guard problem (personally, I like Beno, but Speedy is better) and we add some youth/athleticsm. Granted, we still need a SF to eventually replace Bowen, but I think that's a solid line-up

C-Brown/Jak/Bonner-really all 6 of these are interchangable and not including Scola
PF-Tim/Horry/Oberto

SF-Bowen/Williams
SG-Ginobili/Smith
PG-Parker/Speedy/Beno

thoughts?

PJ would be a stop gap for the center position this year & he only has one year left on his contract, so it would come off the books after next season...freeing up more money next summer...IMO, if the Spurs s&t Nazr, it will be for a big with an ending contract, unless there is just some center that the team is in love with that they wouldn't mind paying big money to.

Actually it was that they ran out of time.

Spurs didn't get rid of Claxton...Claxton ( and you can't blame him) wanted the chance to start. That wasn't going to happen so he opted to go.

But if I remember correctly...he liked the Spurs...would have liked to stay...liked the organization...there wasn't any resentment...he just moved on.

Now...the possibilities are there that he might return.

Again...sometimes things just don't fall into place in this league even if the team and a player like each other.

It could happen...

Posted on CNNSI in the NBA rumors section:

Speedy Claxton would be a good fit in Dallas and it's a possibility, but he's expressed some interest in returning to San Antonio.

semut is correct.
Spurs and NO had a deal but then another team called and worked out a deal with NO that caused their cap space to change and thus making the Barry null & void. NO & SA tried to get a third team involved to work it out but it didn't work out and then the deadline hit.

SClax! He'd probably be the best player off the bench, save for the random Manu benchings.

I would be happy with either deal, just not sure how gas PJ Brown has in the tank. But it would be low risk b/c think his contract comes off the books after this cooming season, the same time as Bonner's and Erick Williams. Which could open the door for alot of future trade flexibility or maybe some cap room for next summer................................... I doubt we'll see anything happen with us and the Hornets until after the Draft b/c there trying to use there pick and Smith to move up higher.
