Would Josh Smith Be A Good Fit?
Like the thread title said would Josh Smith be a good fit for the Raptors, maybe a package including Baragani and a few other pieces. What do you think

I think a "HELL YES" would be a more appropriate instead of "yes" on the above poll.
Also, as much as I would love to see Josh Smith suit up in a Raptors uniform, I see no reason why the Hawks would ever complete such a trade.

Yes, because JSmith actually plays defense- something that leaves Jay stuck on stupid with his purely offensive mentality.
Don't know if ATL is trying to move him since Horford is moving to PF position according to Hawk related media reports but they have quality depth at both of their forward spots. BC needs to make some real moves not the sideways trades that leave TO no better off than before said trade and/or acquisition.

then theres no one that can create his own shot and we wont have a center. Plus bargs hasnt even got a chance to prove his worth and j smove would hate to be on the raps.

on the contrary, Smith might welcome playing with the raptors.
We have a really young core that suits his run and gun play, and most players are the same age as him
he knows that when he comes here, most likely he will be the man, maybe even considered as a franchise player
ive never heard smith being vocal about his desire to win a championship immediately, so maybe he is looking for a team where he'll be able to pad his stats (like a previous so-called franchise player we had) and then set himself up for a big contract extension which we will be able to afford since we'll only have the young guns on contract by then.
if smith was really concerned in winning, he wouldve asked for a trade by now considering the past 3 disappointing season the hawks have had, and now with the max signing of joe johnson, he should realize that he will never ever be the man in atlanta.

Ed davis mentor
i just noticed that Josh Smith would be the perfect Mentor to Ed Davis. In regards to they are both left handed shot-blockers who are capable of running like a guard and show athleticsm tht suprises alot of teams

I remember when I posted on a Pistons forum.
Every summer ever since Smith came into the league the Pistons fans there would create at least one Josh Smith thread debating the merits of the Pistons trading for him. Of course nothing ever came of Smith becoming a Pistons
