Trade for Josh Smith

The idea of making a trade for Josh Smith has been floating around the internet at various places. Smith is apparently unhappy in Atlanta. You'd be too if you were being booed at home.

I personally like Smith as a player. He's very athletic, a good defender, and a great shot blocker. A few years ago, when the Sixers had a chance to sign him, I was all for it. If we sent Lou Williams to the Hawks, he could make for an inexpensive replacement for Jamal Crawford. And the combination of Smith and Iguodala would be an exiting one for sure, and might just bring in some fan interest. (Imagine this guy and this guy on the same team) That, and keeping our young core of Holiday, Turner, Meeks and Young could make games exciting now, but also leave us with developing pieces for the future.

I'm thinking something like this:

Do you think a trade for Smith could and should be worked out by the Sixers? It wouldn't make them title contenders, but if the strategy is to field a competitive team now, he could at least help maybe get the team past the first round. What says you people?
