This is the ugly road I fear the Nets would inevitably have to go down to acquire a player as talented as Josh Smith. I see two schools of thought here: you believe Lopez is playing above his head and want to secure the most value for him as possible, and you do it; or, you think that Lopez is just a flat-out better, younger, cheaper (in the long-term) basketball player than Smith, and dealing Lopez leaves the Nets with a gaping hole at center roughly equivalent to the one they have at power forward now, just with less depth.
I’m in the latter. Pass.
