So if this report is true, Atlanta likes Smart. It's also been reported Collins could be had for a starter and a pick. It's also been reported they'd like to clear out some salary from the likes of Gallinari and/or Bogi.
So we have Smart, a starter they like. We have a 2022 FRP which is currently 13th and the potential to add a second FRP in 24. We have Horford with a partially guaranteed contract to help save $$ next year. We also have a couple vets in Schroder/Richardson. A couple lower level prospects in Nesmith, Grant, Langford.
If Atlanta is as motivated as reported, we seem to have most of the pieces they could want.
If we could turn Smart/Horford ++ into Collins and Gallinari or Bogi how much would you be willing to add as our ++? I'd go pretty strong if we could end up with Brown, Tatum, Collins, Williams as our core.
I was playing around with that idea yesterday. I'd give up Smart, Horford and two #1s if that appealed to Atlanta. I'd love to see us make a 3-way trade with Dallas to bring back Brunson, too.
