Why does ATL do it? I don't think Horford and Jefferson would work well together, they have similar playing styles. Both are offensive focused, and not that great on defense.
If Phoenix wants to trade for Josh Smith, I think they'd want to build around him and dragic, they have no reason to give him up in this trade.
Maybe they're trying to pair Smith/Dragic/Dwight?
This trade would definantly have to be tweaked. Maybe add the Lakers and get pau there and gasol in Atlanta. Or just swap out al and add Paul for the hawks. Plus pick. I'm sure there is a way to get them a serviceable pg
Dang ill fix it
I'd rather have Dragic than Josh Smith and his conniption fit self anyway.

Also don't know why ATL would do this because they are only sending expiring contracts out to get Big AL and a solid, but unspectacular starting wing in DUdley. Al is an expiring that is redundant (and worse than Horford). They would also have to be getting picks from Utah to make this worthwhile.
All in all, I would love this trade, even if it meant us having to send out a pick or two, but I don't see any of the other teams jumping on board. Especially since Phoenix can just sign Smith in the off-season with their cap-space (I believe they have a ton).
Also, figure a way to throw in Marvin to Phoenix. They have a dearth of SF's and Marvin would be able to get more touches in Phoenix.
