 FilterJosh Smith3/27/2015 7:20 PMmbuser 0% (0)The short-term projections like him, given the volume of minutes he'll have to play. Lots of counting stats and the expected efficiency hit.
 FilterJosh Smith3/27/2015 6:59 PMneilrizo 0% (0)No Jones. No Donatas. An adjusting Dwight. Is he *dare I ask* a must pick-up now?
 FilterJosh Smith3/24/2015 2:12 AMmbuser 0% (0)Yes, they take Howard's return into account.

 FilterJosh Smith3/16/2015 10:59 AMshinni13 0% (0)any reason as to why his minutes are downtrending to only minutes in the teens?
 FilterJosh Smith2/25/2015 10:24 AMjphanned 0% (0)His rates have already been adjusted. Only difference really is the minutes, which will come down once Dwight Howard returns from injury.
 FilterJosh Smith2/25/2015 8:00 AM#36895 0% (0)Josh Smith has been playing great over the past month. Time for a bump? Or will he come back down to earth?
 FilterJosh Smith2/5/2015 12:14 PMcastorius 0% (0)How high is the Rockets coaching staff on this guy? Do they favor him or do they really want Terrence Jones to get back to old form soon? Any word or idea on where the coaching staff sits in this PF position battle?
 FilterJosh Smith2/2/2015 10:36 AMstevenomes 0% (0)smart tool seems to offer some good and bad suggestions depending on your situation. also it looks like bbm still has smoove at 23 mpg ROS and he's outside of top 200. I'd assume that's why smart tool wants u to drop him.
 FilterJosh Smith2/2/2015 10:01 AMwaltmcgee 0% (0)smart tool is recommending dropping Smith for C.Zeller, but with D12 going down i see bump in minutes and stats... thoughts?
 FilterJosh Smith1/31/2015 11:13 PMpuntfreethrows 0% (0)Any bump with the D12 news?
 FilterJosh Smith1/30/2015 2:29 AMImadogg 100% (1)Been playing better in the last couple games, Dwight might be out a while, and he isn't shooting many FTs.. dammit I actually added Josh Smith in a couple leagues. God help me
 FilterJosh Smith1/3/2015 2:56 AMcrucified77 0% (0)Promises aside, if he comes off the bench when T. Jones come back I'm not sure he'll be as terrible, just minutes restricted.
 FilterJosh Smith1/3/2015 2:53 AMcrucified77 0% (0)In 5 games he seems like a bench or drop unless McHale puts him coming off the bench. The Rockets have their work cut out for them as he hasn't fit in so far in the starting 5 (source Rockets game coverage tonight).
 FilterJosh Smith1/2/2015 9:03 PM#36895 100% (3)I recently traded for Smith. Have i made a huge mistake?
 FilterJosh Smith12/28/2014 5:35 PMdmildagreat 0% (0)It looks like he has been removed for the available players on FanDuel. Not sure what is going on.
 FilterJosh Smith12/28/2014 2:55 PMkslight 0% (0)Can you send a link to the contest you're looking at?
 FilterJosh Smith12/28/2014 2:09 PMdmildagreat 0% (1)Incorrectly labeled as a PF for FanDuel. He should be a SF.
 FilterJosh Smith12/26/2014 6:30 PMjphanned 0% (0)McHale said he will "play it by ear," when asked who will start at PF. Rockets only have a few practices over the next couple weeks to work Smith in and get him familiar with their offense.
 FilterJosh Smith12/25/2014 6:00 PMmbuser 0% (0)Smith should be there now, thanks for the heads up.
 FilterJosh Smith12/25/2014 5:31 PMKoalaballa 0% (0)Not showing up in my weekly projections for this week and next week, FYI
 FilterJosh Smith12/25/2014 1:51 PMjphanned 100% (1)Yeah, I doubt Josh Smith is only going to average 25 mpg as this blogger suggests.

 FilterJosh Smith12/25/2014 1:38 AMcrucified77 100% (1)Rockets said they will start him. Now it get's interesting to see how he plays and how many minutes. Not sure what to expect but I'm actually positive he'll be better than in DET.
 FilterJosh Smith12/24/2014 12:04 PMjphanned 100% (1)Has committed to signing with the Rockets.
 FilterJosh Smith12/23/2014 3:04 AMjphanned 0% (0)Yeah right now we don't have a "Free Agent" team, which has been on the to-do list for some time. That's why his stats from this year aren't showing up now. When he's added to a roster shortly, then they'll be back up again.
 FilterJosh Smith12/23/2014 1:02 AMrico381 0% (0)"Player stats" display looks broken: after being waived, his stats from this year aren't showing up at all.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 7:27 PMhsahardid 100% (2)Not good for terrence jones if josh smith does actually sign with houston.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 4:44 PMak murthy 50% (2)Does anyone think Smith's fg% could improve? His offensive role in houston would be minimized, lessening the negative impact he has on the category. Does anyone think we could see a more vintage Smoove stat line now that he's not running wild in Detroit?
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 4:42 PMak murthy 67% (3)The reports about Houston are coming from Woj, therefore until I hear otherwise it is fact. No one is more reliable and knowledgeable in all of sports journalism.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 4:01 PMAZ18 50% (2)he apparently was trying to find a way to get on the Rockets team. Dwight was his best man at his wedding, he wants to play for a contender. The writing is on the wall, once he clears waivers he will be a Rocket.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 3:39 PMjphanned 100% (1)Difference between biannual exception and veteran's minimum is just $629K. For Smith, who's making $13.5 million already this year, don't imagine that makes a world of difference.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 3:34 PMIndesertum 0% (0)the reason why people say houston has the best chance to land him is because houston has a BAE that i dont think the other interested teams have
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 3:16 PMdunishr 100% (2)This is the NBA, so he'll still get his $27 million (it's all guaranteed). The question will be how much of it the Pistons will be on the hook for.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 3:10 PMjyang61107 0% (1)I'll take any trade rumor with a grain of salt. But it great to smack talk on where he lands. In my opinion he will fit no where and clear waivers. He's not going to get paid 27 million anymore.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 3:07 PMbenron 0% (0)I posted: "Based on reports...." I didn't say anything about it being fact. But I did offer my opinion on how I feel Smith would fit in Houston. It's important that people still do their homework even after reading info on here.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 3:01 PMFisherman805 0% (0)If there's no "orange" under the "User" column next to the comment, you'd better only read it as gossips (this included). These unconfirmed reports, panicked moves (+Smart, -Jones, +Schroder) are what lead people astray. Matt & Justin never puts out anything unconfirmed or unreliable. & Doesn't matter where Smith lands. His % killing cats + TO are always gonna dog him.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 2:36 PMbenron 50% (2)Based on reports, Houston is now the favorite to land him. If I'm an owner of Smith, this is great news and a perfect buy low canidate. Let's not forget that he almost had a 5x5 line not too long ago on a team that he didn't fit on.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 1:09 PMbenron 0% (0)Correction, Smith doesn't play well in a half court offense down low. Big difference. In Houston, the up-tempo offense they play would benfit him greatly and mazimize his ability on offense as a passer and finisher. He would have many more chances for easy buckets down low. Ariza can stay at the 3 spot where he belongs. I don't see how it's now a great fit for both teams. McHale would help JS too.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 1:04 PMmrg12686 50% (2)Except, Smith doesn't play down low. He thinks he is a shooting guard and chucks up a bunch of ill advised shots. They have Ariza, they don't need Josh Smith. They need a floor spacer and they value efficiency. Josh Smith is a horrible fit in real basketball life IMO and I would be shocked if Houston signed him.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 12:55 PMbenron 0% (2)Best case scenerio would be Houston for a number fo reasons. Smith fills a need in Houston at the 4 spot, he would also benefit in theri up-tempo offense, would benefit playing next to Howard down low, and will still produce the defensive stats he's best for. Going to Dallas would really hurt his fantasy value though. He starts in Houston but off the bench in Dallas. I'm rooting for Houston.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 12:35 PMdsdza 100% (4)SVG to Smoove: "You wanna stay? Then shoot for it..."
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 11:33 AMmrg12686 0% (0)Add Singler/JJ for Hardaway?
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 11:31 AMjyang61107 0% (0)I figure KCP get more shot attempts. Someone has to take over his FGA.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 11:27 AMjphanned 100% (1)Monroe and Jerebko are your winners here, and this helps Meeks some too. This has nothing to do with KCP.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 11:21 AMbenron 0% (0)No way you cut bait. If he does to the Kings, he will be every bit as productive in teh cats you want him to be in. The only difference I could see is a higher fg% if he's playing the 4 spot next to Cousins. I think it's good for his value that he's out of Detroit. Playing next to Drummond really isn't a good match for Smith. But next to Cousins makes more sense.
 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 11:20 AMunbigote 0% (1)So... Mark Cuban gonna pick up the tab?

 FilterJosh Smith12/22/2014 10:59 AMmbuser 0% (0)Stunning move. Now we wait and see where he lands after he clears waivers. Kings fans bracing for the inevitable?

 FilterJosh Smith11/21/2014 12:21 PMKoalaballa 0% (0)Need a sell high moment to get the process going. He doesn't have any great value in a straight up trade at this moment.
 FilterJosh Smith11/21/2014 9:48 AMehrenberggreg 100% (1)I wouldn't outright drop him he might have some trade value
 FilterJosh Smith11/21/2014 9:26 AMKoalaballa 0% (0)trending downward recently. Worth holding on to in 12 team standard leagues?
 FilterJosh Smith10/30/2014 9:23 AMTrusted Advisor dcdoorknob 0% (0)DraftKings has him as a SF but he's in bbm's DK settings as a PF.
 FilterJosh Smith10/18/2014 9:40 PMjphanned 0% (0)Twisted his ankle in the third quarter of Saturday's exhibition and didn't return, though he's fine. SVG was told he could return but just decided against it because he was on the bench a while and got cold.
 FilterJosh Smith10/17/2014 10:40 AMmbuser 0% (0)SVG going with his big starting five on Friday: Jennings, Singler, Smith, Monroe, Drummond
 FilterJosh Smith10/7/2014 11:21 AMmbuser 0% (0)Smith gets the start at PF tonight, with Monroe off the bench (Meeks/Caron at SG/SF). This is a situation to monitor all preseason, with Smith the initial favorite to start for SVG.

 FilterJosh Smith11/13/2013 3:11 PMgcbillinois 17% (12)SF is a disaster. But I smell a trade. C for PG. Maybe Rondo.
 FilterJosh Smith11/13/2013 3:01 PMHoundie 0% (0)Will Josh get it going this year? Or is being pushed further from the basket going to give current form all year?
 FilterJosh Smith11/8/2013 12:20 AMmbuser 0% (0)The ridiculous stat is 7.0 3PA per game at 25%. Something has to give there, that's way too loose.
 FilterJosh Smith11/7/2013 8:35 PMjlongrc 67% (3)Will his fg% stay this low? Been there throughout preseason. Loosening the reins might mean he never approaches efficiency again.
 FilterJosh Smith10/30/2013 8:53 PMzheeduh 0% (2)Averaged 1.7 3PM in preseason. Has 5 ATTEMPTS tonight at halftime... can he average 1.5 3's this year?

 FilterJosh Smith9/19/2013 12:31 PMjboldt73 100% (1)My thought was, he is Big for a SF, Small for a PF - when he played SF more he as more blocks than lately as he played PF.
 FilterJosh Smith9/19/2013 12:06 PMak murthy 50% (2)No jboldt, playing SF means he's further from the basket and in position for fewer blocks.
 FilterJosh Smith9/19/2013 6:08 AMjboldt73 0% (0)Would that not come with an uptick in blocks? back to the earlier yrs when he was a SF most of the time? Or is age catching up?
 FilterJosh Smith9/19/2013 1:38 AMmbuser 100% (4)His FG% is headed south with his playing a lot more SF and jacking up threes and long twos. And lower FG% = fewer points on a similar amount of shots.
 FilterJosh Smith9/19/2013 1:34 AMwotto11 0% (0)Also drop off in points?
 FilterJosh Smith9/19/2013 1:33 AMwotto11 0% (0)Is FG% projection a little low? ESPN actually has it increasing to .485
 FilterJosh Smith3/8/2013 5:21 PMmbuser 100% (2)1.3 STL, 2.3 BLK over his first 34 games. But looking at his splits, he faded like this last season, as well. http://tinyurl.com/an982wj
 FilterJosh Smith3/8/2013 2:33 PMthatkellenguy 100% (1)Good point. His drop in blocks seems to coincide with his increase in 3s attempted the last few years. He has only broken 2 bpg once since 07-08. 1.6-1.7 is probably more realistic for Smoove.
 FilterJosh Smith3/8/2013 1:06 PMmbuser 67% (3)But let's be honest, it's his STL/BLK that pay the bills, and they aren't paying the bills as of late (0.9, 1.4 over his past 25 games).
 FilterJosh Smith3/8/2013 12:36 PMthatkellenguy 50% (2)Like you always say Buser, it's a small sample size. Five games ago he posted 24-14-7 and 3 games ago he posted 19-7-7 with a steal and 3 blocks. Same old Josh Smith.
