Atlanta Hawks’ forward Josh Smith has been involved in numerous trade rumors in the past week and according to Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Smith has let the Hawks know that he wants to be out of Atlanta.
Cunningham reports that Smith wants to go somewhere “he can better reach his potential on and off the court.”
Smith wanted out of Atlanta last season and wants to go to a team that is more dedicated to win a championship.
Some reports are saying that the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Boston Celtics are interested in Smith but the Hawks are not interested in taking any players with expiring contracts.
