Josh Smith getting better every month?




Maybe we can just wait and he'll be a 20/10 guy for us? Here's his numbers over the last three months

Month FG% REB AST STL BLK PPG

Dec 40.4% , 5.8 , 3.2 , 1.2 , 1.4 , 16.4

Jan 44.9% , 7.3 , 3.3 , 1.8 , 1.3 , 17.2

Feb 45.4% , 8.7 , 5.1 , 2.1 , 1.7 , 18.4

February has been a great month for Smith, really great. This isn't every category as you can see. His turnovers are up from 2.1 to 3.1 per game. His 3p% has went from horrible to horribler* to still horrible and his ft% has also declined from 66% in December to 50% in February. However, he has made some improvements over the course of the season. He seems to fit in with this group better now than he did to start the year. His 3 point attempts are down to 3.1 per game so far this month, an improvement from the 4.5 mark in November, which should make everybody happy.

This is not a save Josh Smith fan club post. More of a response to some people asking for some positives on Josh Smith. These numbers are both positive and encouraging. If he keeps up the improved fit, I could live with keeping him the rest of the year while looking for trades in the off-season. Better number = better trade value and regardless of what some people think, if he finished the year playing like he has in February, he will have trade value at 13.5 million a year with no raises.
