Best Potential Trade Packages, Scenarios and Landing Spots for Josh Smith
USA TODAY Sports

As quickly as it hit the news cycle, rumors about Josh Smith leaving the Detroit Pistons in a multiplayer trade with the Sacramento Kings, as first reported by ESPN's Marc Stein, fizzled out.

Per Stein:

Sources say that Smith being swapped in exchange for the combination of Sacramento's Jason Thompson and Derrick Williams is one trade construction that the teams have discussed. Although one source insisted Tuesday that no deal is imminent, another source told ESPN.com that the teams have continued to exchange proposals, with Williams potentially being replaced by another Kings player such as Jason Terry or Carl Landry.

Shortly thereafter, Jonathan Givony of Draft Express reported that talks between the Kings and Pistons were "dead."

Though no deal seems imminent, we should take one thing from the brief lifespan of the Smith-to-Sacramento rumors: The Pistons are at least exploring options to divest themselves of J-Smoove, and they're apparently not asking for a whole lot in return.

Actually, there are two things to take away. The second is that we should all be rooting for those talks between Detroit and Sacramento to revive. There is nothing in this world more gruesomely entertaining than the prospect of watching DeMarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay and Smith struggling to work together in the same frontcourt.

And even if Sacramento may not be Smith's ultimate destination, it's worth a glance through the rest of the league for possible alternatives.

If the Pistons are serious about unclogging their frontcourt and clearing up their books, they'd do well to consider the following Smith trade options.
