He's more than welcome to a max contract, as long as its anywhere but here
Just asking if you would want to add a:
- 6'9" 225lb PF
- Just turned 27 in December
- 5yr/94M is what he thinks he's worth this FA
- We give up no assets as we nab him in free agency
- Total headcase on par with Tyrus, but way more talented
- We do blow our cap, but the age/scorer/need/athleticism/"stud" combo is justified
No doubt he would make nights at the arena much more fun for the short term.
But I have "Bobcats/Cho Syndrome", meaning I am addicted to adding young prospects in the 18-22 age group.
We can try to be respectable now with Kemba/Henderson/Sessions/Gordon/Smith, or we can try to build toward the deeper future and add guys in MKG and Biyombo's age range, leaving our cap space open.
How about this?:
Smith/Olynyk or Plumlee??
You let Henderson go, but that leaves cap space for Smith. And you hope Shabazz is a stud from the get-go and the future superstar that we have desperately craved. And then we are "own our way"??

If we signed him I'd try to hope for the best and enjoy the highlights he provides. (The hope is he would mature with age and benefit from a change of scenery)
id rather give assets to get Horford than get Josh Smith for nothing
Why do we need Smith, we got Thomas already!
I'm scared to go after Horford he's injury prone. I love Josh Smith and I think he's a max contract type player Plays 3 positions, okay shooter, great defender, pretty good passer.
Not at his contract demands.
I would rather that cap space be spent on a true PF or C with a back to the basket post game.
