Several teams have shown interest in Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith, but the franchise hasn't decided whether to move J-Smoove.
Fox Sports' Sam Amico broke down the list, which includes Phoenix, Dallas, Charlotte, Houston, New
Orleans and Sacramento. One of those franchises stands out to Amico: The Kings.
"The Kings, in particular, make sense because
expiring deals are always appealing to new ownership groups that want to
start fresh. The Kings also have plenty of rising talent that could
tempt someone in [Atlanta GM Danny] Ferry’s position. That said, Ferry could just as
easily sit tight and wait for the season to end. Just imagine the freed
salary cap space if he did."
Smith isn't the only Hawks player drawing interest. Guys on expiring deals -- Kyle Korver, Anthony Morrow, Zaza Pachulia,
Anthony Tolliver and Devin Harris -- could also be nice trade chips, Amico writes.
Then again, the Hawks could wait for free agency and make a run at Dwight Howard.
