Josh Smith was supposed to develop into a super star with the Atlanta Hawks. That didn’t happen. Now Smith has moved on tot the Detroit Pistons and has been working with Rasheed Wallace to polish up his game. Wallace won an NBA championship with the Pistons in 2004 and joined the franchise this off season as an assistant coach. “I’m just trying to polish up on things,” he said after working with assistant coach Rasheed Wallace on the perimeter and in the low post. “I’m trying to be more consistent on my mid-range and long-range jumper. I’ve been working on it hard each and every day here. “Rasheed has been teaching me some things that I need to know on the block; some veteran leadership from him. He has been able to show me some things. It’s always beneficial when you have a veteran guy who has played in the NBA and been successful and now they’re coaches. They can see things from a player’s and a coach’s standpoint.
