Getting Brogdon might also incentivize Brown to stick around, if they really are close, like-minded and friendly like that.
Man, this deal just keeps getting better the more I think about it. I hope Brogdon starts.
Smart can go back to doing what he does best: coming off the bench and scaring the bejeesus out of second units. We can start a first unit that's nothing but excellent shooters. I've been fine with watching Smart be the last man open after a good possession of ball movement, but it'll be much better when you've got Brogdon, Brown, Tatum and Horford out there at the same time. They have all logged multiple seasons around 40% on 3's, and they'll be looking at more open shots than ever.
Not many teams have the defenders to cover Jaylen, Brogdon, and Tatum if they're all on the floor at the same time. Multiple penetrations will yield tons of open shots.
And when the second unit comes in, you're looking at Smart-White-Grant-Gallo and maybe some Pritchard and Hauser. That's two guys who've started for a good chunk of their NBA careers, Grant, who would start in a lot of places, and Gallo, who should thrive in limited minutes. It's mind-boggling how good this roster looks.
