Report: Hawks' Josh Smith Still Wants Trade Before Next Week's Deadline

Rumors have been circulating for nearly a year about Josh Smith's desire to be traded from the Atlanta Hawks, and despite a career year from the athletic young big man, nothing has changed. Smith would still like to be moved in the week leading up to next Thursday's trade deadline, according to Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Smith is on the books for $12.4 million this season and $13.2 million next year in Atlanta, then eligible for free agency in 2013. If the Hawks choose to hold onto him at the deadline, there's not much he can do about it.

“I really don’t pay any attention to it,” Smith said. “I just go out there and play the way I play and not worry about anything else. I know this is a business. Whatever happens, happens in the long run. But I know as long as I’m with the Hawks, I have to put my best foot forward.”

Smith is averaging 17.1 points, 9.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.5 steals this season, and the Hawks are in a tight race for fourth in the Eastern Conference at 23-16.
