Add the San Antonio Spurs to the long, long list of teams interested in acquiring Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith.
Yahoo Sports reported:
"The Spurs are among the teams with interest in Hawks forward Josh Smith,
a source told Yahoo! Sports. Keep in mind, Hawks general manager Danny
Ferry was previously with the Spurs."
This was the meat of the rumor tucked into Marc Spear's NBA power rankings. Of course, the Spurs are interested. The entire league wants J-Smoove (see Brooklyn and Phoenix). But does San Antonio have the assets to get him? And would the Spurs be able to re-sign Smith in the summer?
The Spurs have been named in several trade rumors, among them, Al Jefferson. But that deal doesn't seem likely as the Utah Jazz seem inclined to hang onto Al Jeff.
