He wanted the Max...... he got a lot less and is one of the few people actually moving TO Detroit in the last 8 years...... :man10:

Wow. That was the best offer he could get?

And what's Detroit's plan now? They've GOT to be offering up either Drummond or Monroe now in a trade. Maybe they can swing a deal for Rondo centering around Monroe. Good for both teams.

I think the fact that he wanted the max is the very reason he went to Detroit. They were probably the only ones who offered this much money. Teams in a better situation probably weren't even offering anything close to this Im guessing.

Looks like Dwight is stuck on a mediocre team in Houston.

Enjoy mediocrity.

Over the last few years Detroit has made some really bizzare signings.

Villanueva, Gordon, and now Josh Smith .

14 million a year for Josh Smiff? What a giant waste of money.

Det keeps over spending on guys who are slightly above avg. Smith isn't a 1 option....Honestly he really isn't a legit 2 option. He is really athletic, defensively solid, rebounder etc. Smith doesn't have a great b-ball IQ, his jumpshot is real suspect especially from 3. In short he is slightly better then an in prime odom but with a worse attitude.

As a hawks fans I really don't care at all.

This only bodes well for us when Greg Monroe will want out after a couple of years with Josh getting all the touches on their front court. :man9:

I'd kill for Monroe or Drummond. Shame we have nothing they'd want.

No easy baskets with Smith, Drummond & Monroe in the paint.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

He went from a fringe playoff team to a bottom feeder. Maybe they can luck out and get one of the studs in next summer's draft. I read Rondo to Detroit might have some legs now since he and Josh want to play together. Just glad Atlanta didn't pay him and cut the cord.

I don't understand him going to Detroit, is his goal a NBA championship or just wanting to be the main guy on a team?

Smith, Pistons not working out

By Nick Borges | ESPN.com

Josh Smith did not start on Friday against Atlanta because he missed Thursday's practice, reports The Detroit News. Smith was used by head coach Maurice Cheeks off the bench, however he did not score a point (0-for-7 from the floor) over 19 minutes of game action. Smith had started every game since Nov. 18, 2005. Smith will likely start the next game, but Cheeks would not confirm that.

“Probably, but nothing’s written in stone,” Cheeks said. “We’ll see.”

Smith, while with the Hawks, did have issues with both Mike Woodson and Larry Drew and one has to believe something might be brewing with Cheeks. Smith is being used as a small forward with Greg Monroe at power forward and he has struggled mightily to start his time with the Pistons. Smith's scoring, rebounding, assists and blocks are all down along with his shooting percentage. He has never been a strong three-point shooter, however he is taking 5.2 attempts this season. His career high was 2.6 which took place last season.

The Smith at small forward experiment is not working which means the Pistons have two options: 1) move him to power forward while shifting Monroe to center and Andre Drummond to the bench; and 2) putting Smith on the block come December 15 when he becomes trade eligible. Smith's trade value is very low as he makes $13.5 million per season though 2016-17.


Typical Detroit.

Their plan all along as far as I could figure was that they'd trade Drummond or Monroe...

At least that was the thought. It's the only thing that makes some sense really.

Monroe seems to be the odd man out. He's not putting consistent numbers as he did last year with Smith and Drummond in there.

Drummond looks like he has higher upside and seems to be mentored by Sheed himself.

You don't have to be a NBA expert to know Smith at the 3 would be a disaster .

Anyways, you are a terrible FO when you sign Smith and Jennings ... who's next ? Rudy Gay ?

:man10: :man10: Charlie V/Ben Gordon 2.0

90% of CL could've told you this wouldn't end well. Way to spend 50 million on a chucker who doesn't fit your team's personnel. Did they seriously think Josh Smith could be a full time 3 clanking 5 three point attempts a game? Or were they aware that they were paying that much for a backup 4. Either way, Dumars is making his case for the "worst GM" award.
