    Not sure what direction the Pistons are taking right now... People are saying Elton Brand may go to Miami, and Carmello's trying to get some loyalty pledges out of Denver.

    I've been hearing a lot about Josh Smith coming to the Pistons if Atlanta doesn't give him $11 million or so per season. The Pistons keep getting mentioned prominently...

    We only have a midlevel, so we'd have to do a sign and trade.... Straight up for tayshaun?

    Interesting but how would he factor in with the rest of our power forwards?

    Wish Amir played a little more last year. If a deal like that surfaced then you almost have to go for the more proven young player.

    I'm pretty sure you could get by playing Josh Smith and Amir at the same time at the forward spots. They're both pretty quick and could cover the wing guys (given that the other would be hovering near the basket ready to block any shot that came inside as well).

    Josh Smith would be a best case scenario for this offseason.

    An article just came out that ATL is paying Smith. They have no hesitation at all. I guess we'll see.

    Don't get me wrong, he'd be a great addition, however it doesn't look like it is going to happen.

    Yeah I don't see why Atlanta would want to part with Josh Smith anyway, he's one of the more "all rounded" players in the league.

    Would love to have him on the team though!
