If the cavs still have that soft cap space available in summer 2013, I’ve been leaning toward them retaining it another year. But the one guy I can’t make my mind up on ( because I don’t really know a lot about him) is Josh Smith. I’ll just point out the minuses that bother me. First he’ll be 28 when we sign him, so, in my mind, the cavs have to believe they have a chance to contend for a title in less than 4 years after the signing. Secondly , although he’s often been mentioned as an elite defender, I still haven’t figured out if that means “ at the small forward position” or not. Whenever I saw him play, I always thought he was an “athletic PF who could run”. Now I’ve read some things classifying him as a SF but it’s not clear. I’m not going to go into his other strengths and weaknesses. It just seems to me that if he’s consistently a great defender for 30+ minutes at the SF position, and 28 isn’t “ a year too late”, I think I’d be willing to offer him an expensive 4 year deal with a bunch of that soft cap space. I’m going to add that I’m not assuming that the cavs land a top 10 pick this year. And I personally am giving SF priority over another big because we don’t know how good our young bigs are gonna be, and Alonzo Gee has sixth man / “perimeter defensive specialist” written all over him. Iguodala seems too risky for the money he’ll want because he’ll be a year older than Smith and his scoring has dropped off in the last 2 years. Opinions?
