NBA  > Minnesota Timberwolves  > Getting involve in the josh smith to rockets sign and trade
July 5, 2013, 11:02 PM
With howard choosing the rockets, it seems dwight's good friend josh smith would be the rockets next target. They are looking at trading asik for josh smith. Not sure how the hawks feel about asik.

What we can do here is get involve in the talks, kind of like what denver and philly did in the howard-bynum trade last season.

Scenario 1. If hawks like pek more than asik and would be making a big max type offer to pek(making it difficult for us to match), a 3 team trade with asik+ a draft pick coming here coming here, pek going to atl and smith going to the rockets.

Scenario 2.
Trade dw+luke to the hawks(dw to replace josh, luke as an expiring and backup to teague)

Smith goes to houston

Asik going to us then we explore possibilities of trading asik to another team
( to boston for jeff green?) or 3ven explore trading pek in a s and t(to portland along with shabazz for batum+lopez?) Asik has good value around the league and atl would be looking to get something in return for smith.

Of course, atlanta could simply make it asik for mith sign and trade but if i were lip, il try to explore possibilities and get something out of it like denver and philly did last season in the howard trade.
