Hawks Won't Give Smith Max. Taking Offers for him.

Quote
The Atlanta Hawks are entertaining trade offers around the league for forward Josh Smith, but have yet to decide whether they will deal the ninth-year forward, according to league sources.

Quote
The Hawks met with Smith's representatives this week and reiterated -- as they initially offered at the beginning of the season -- that they would be willing to give Smith a three-year deal for around $47 million, according to sources. This is the maximum of what they can currently offer under the new rules of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Quote
Smith turned down the offer, however, saying he preferred to play out his existing contract and get a longer deal this summer.

Initially, it was believed that the Hawks had indicated they would not give Smith the five-year max contract he can receive this summer. But sources indicated Friday afternoon that the two sides have not had any discussions about the full five-year deal.

Quote
Smith, according to a source, is prepared to move on, outside of the contract discussions.

I'm sure Danny is making them an offer. But doubt it happens. Would love to have Smith here though.

Don't like Terry starting. Would hope we could get another PG. But would love to get J-smoove.

Broussard says 60% chance Smith traded and Brooklyn is trying to get him.

I think in this scenario, Barbosa starts... while that isn't ideal, I don't think it's all that bad since we have PP who is more than capable of being an excellent point forward (as he is right now). PP is routinely getting about 7 assists since RR went down (he does it every time RR is out), then add on the 4 assists Smith gets, and that Barbs can handle the ball and get you some assist, that isn't that bad at all. Then next season, if everyone is healthy, WOW.

Thing is, I don't think ATL takes that and could probably get better...

yup...that's a good question...unless they dump Lopez and sign Howard this summer.
