    Morey already forgot the importance of Josh Smith for this team.

    Josh Smith is absolutely deserving more money than Morey provided.

    Josh Smith:
    1. The only playmaker except Harden.
    2. The only PF can defense in this team.
    3. The third best player in this team.
    4. Made great contribution for last playoffs.

    I will be pissed off if Morey let Josh Smith go just because of 2 million $.

    I wouldn't be surprised. That would tick Dwight off though!

    My question is.....If Josh Smith signed a 1+1 deal for the non bird tender($2.49M) with the second year being his option.............

    Will the Rockets have bird rights on him next year to give him a bigger contract?

    You mean Dirk OR AK47 clone? Because Dirk and AK47 are basically polar opposites as players. Dirk is basically all offense and no defense. AK47 was a defensive stud.

    Dmo and Brewer are both good enough to be starters, KJ is a legit bench player but the other 2 is understandable

    I think Thornton will backup Harden.

    Nets stole Bargnani from the Kings, so the Kings are free to go back after Smith.

    Looks like they offered him the non-tender($2.5M?) and as expected, in no hurry to take it.

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Brewer not signed. Just about scheduling his physical. Nothing new on Smith.
