According to Marc J. Spears, “Expectations are growing that the Hawks will trade forward Josh Smith, a source said.”
Josh Smith has had a terrific month of January, averaging 17 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 blocks per game.
Whichever franchise rolls the dice on the upcoming free agent must realize what sort of contract he is seeking. “I feel like I’m a max player,” Smith said, via The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I feel I bring a lot to the table. I have a lot of versatility. For what I do and what I give this ballclub, I feel like I’m worth it.”
