    Sounds good, I thought that a trade between the Warriors and Atlanta was bound to happen anyway. Smith might be incredibly athletic and talented and young, but he's got bad relationships with management in Atlanta, and Horford wants to play the 4. Ellis might be a great scorer, but he's undersized for his position, the Warriors are clearly going with Curry in the backcourt, and he's a bad defender (gambles too much for steals). On the other hand, Josh Smith is definitely going to see a bigger role in Golden State (he was like what, the 5th scoring option behind Johnson, the two Crawfords, and Horford last year, not to mention the other guards) so that could make him happier, and Monta Ellis, if he plays the PG position, would be more effective. If Atlanta decides they don't necessarily want Ellis and Biedrins, maybe they could get a third team in on this. Nice ideas.

    I think it would be a good trade because the Warriors desperately need a quality bigman and J-Smoove could be exactly who they're looking for!

    But, there are some flaws in your lineups.

    1. Benson over Pachulia.

    no longer good. all and sundry however the only group that loses a extensive participant (Phoenix dropping Nash) wins in this. Phoenix's products that they get at the instant are not on the brink of adequate for Steve Nash, to make this finished element paintings, edit the commerce to get the Suns one effect participant, it ought to realistically be a blend of Jamal Crawford & Marvin Williams, or it must be Josh Smith or Al Horford.
