Some of my biggest surprises:

- Chicago not making any moves for luxury tax purposes. Guess there's a first time for everything
- Josh Smith standing pat
- Mozgov staying
- Dejuan Blair staying

Some of my biggest no surprises were Utah standing pat and Toronto sticking with Bargnani. Utah can at least sign and trade with both their bigs and as for Bargnani, let's be honest here. Nobody in this trade board likes hearing that B word. Regardless, not surprising Bargnani has zero value outside of BC's bedroom

Atlanta won't get anything of value for Josh Smith in the summer. Hawks fans should go ahead and deal with that right now.

Nuggets would have been left with a problem of only having 2 guys who have the size to play center if they would have traded Mozgov, plus with the run they went on prior to the all star break, the Nuggets did not seem all that inclined to make a deal. People do not realize there is exactly one guy left on the team since prior to the Melo deal just 2 years ago.

Personally my biggest surprise was not seeing the Hawks trade Smith, the rumors were out there that he was gone to the best offer regardless of what the final package for at least a week.

:lol: too funny, but real talk Smith, Milsap or Jefferson all staying put...oh well

Nelson or Harrington being packaged with JJ would've been great to do, but the Magic front office sucks anyway

Why do y'all listen to the rumors when Ferry never talks to the press? We keep saying we need a Center for Smith.

What was offered that came close to what the Hawks could get by using Smith's money this offseason?

I was surprised at the Orlando/Charlotte trade until I found out about the TPE switch... brilliant! IMO the Redick trade helps both teams. Smith not being traded is a disaster... what were they thinking.. or not? Smith for Gortat and whatever else would have got Atlanta the center they needed for years.

Have you ever sold something for less than it's worth... then taken the cash and turned into a great deal on something that YOU could buy for less than it is worth? Thank you :D

Trying to figue out what point you're trying to illustrate with this analogy. If it's for ATL and Smith, then I'd then the analogy goes further toward saying we should have let him expire and take the $$ to FA...

If you look on the Hawks' board, you will see that fans have been saying for the last 5 months..... re-sign Josh Smith or take the cap space. Atlanta fans are smart enough that they know that they don't want garbage players and contracts from other teams, as well as 1st round picks in a weak draft who are guaranteed a contract and will eat into Atlanta's cap space.

for the past 5 months, i have been saying that the Hawks are not going to trade Josh, and like aways,... i end up being right again and again.

My point was that Atlanta REALLY needs a good center and has for years. If they would have sold low on Smith to Phoenix they could have got Gortat back. Although he is not worth as much as Smith, he is on a great contract and is exactly what Atlanta needs. By being greedy they got no sale... and when Smith walks they'll have cap space to get what good center???

This is just dumb. Atlanta needs a center, that is why they are going after Dwight, Pekovic, or Al Jefferson this summer.

Its pointless for a team like the Hawks to get a backup center like Gortat, Asik, or Kaman, when they have so much cap that they can go after legit NBA centers like Howard or Al Jefferson.

at least jazz fans can probably be assured that Favors will get more pt come next season.
