Really don't get what Smith adds that we need.
-He can't shoot
-His athleticism would be meaningless as we are not a running team
-He's not a great rebounder and we already are a very good rebounding team

And to top it off he's gonna want a max contract?!
Please... he would be the WORST contract in the league after he got handed that.
Completely agree with you Chuck. But he would still be an upgrade over what we have now. All I know is Reggie Evans cannot start and play 30+ minutes or else we have a huge disadvantage on both ends of the court. I love Reggie but he's best used when playing 15-20 minutes off the bench. But yeah I'd much rather have Millsap, he already had good chemistry with Deron in Utah and would finally get him the PnR player Deron needs.

I would LOVE KG on this team but that's a pipe dream.
