they get to keep him for the rest of the season and i think they are fully aware their bird rights will be able to net them similar offers in the offseason. the team that wins josh smith in free agency is the team that gives him the 5 year deal..... not the 4 year one.

danny ferry is a spur. that front office is renowned for not allowing themselves to get pushed into a corner. i think hammonds tactics worked well considering we were the last team standing. we just didnt get it done. my guess was that the price was too high in regards to sanders.... not this ellis stuff. ferry may have preferred ellis as an expiring but he wasnt going to hang up the phone if we preferred to keep him either.

One thing I'm sure we can both agree on, all the vague and conflicting reports combined with what we simply don't know about what actually happened makes arguing about how well the bucks did or how badly they f*cked up at deadline essentially impossible lol...

Bucks guard Brandon Jennings admitted Friday it was a tantalizing prospect to think about playing with Smith, a strong defender and versatile player who has averaged 15.2 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 2.2 blocks and 1.3 steals in his NBA career.

Smith smiled when told of Jennings' comments.

"He's a talented player and has a lot of potential in this league," Smith said of Jennings. "Who wouldn't want to play with a Brandon Jennings?

"But I'm an Atlanta Hawk and we're seeing how we can beat this team."


Let the speculation of free agency continue...
This is about winning basketball games. This is about winning Championships.

Well now I'm officially scared. Want no part of maxing out Josh Smith, or overpaying Jennings.

I'll try almost anything that gives the team cohesion. If Smith, Ellis and/or Jennings,Sanders will hang together (as trained instincts players?), that may be a start.

Could be more promising than doing a housecleaning, going after good free agents, and having to settle for middling ones. Continued mediocrity with fresh faces doesn't much appeal to me.

I can't decide if that team would be fun to watch, or terrible to watch.

Josh Smith and Larry Sanders would probably be one of, if not the best PF/C combo in the league defensively. I can't help but get a little excited thinking about that, offensive efficiency problems aside.

I can't think of one that comes close

If Josh Smith WANTS to come here and we'll pay him.....I have no problem paying him and Jennings.

He could be the Bucks Reggie White FA that changes some perception....who knows how it will play out.

I'm down for the move, like everyone else for the right price. He is a top 10 player no doubt at his position. Add a couple fillers and this team would get more people in the seats and I think be more competitive than our teams in recent years. I think we could be a top 4 team in the east with him on the team

I would rather pay Josh the max, than pay Redick/Jennings/Monta 20 million per year for 2 of the 3 of them.

I agree, but it's a false dilemma.
