The Atlanta Hawks met with Josh Smith's representatives this week and indicated that they are not willing to give the forward a max contract after this season, according to a league source.
The Hawks, in turn, are entertaining trade offers for Smith around the NBA but haven't decided whether they will deal him.
Smith, averaging almost 17 points and nine rebounds this season, is prepared to move on from the Hawks.

Source close to situation says "60 percent" chance ATL trades Josh Smith b4 deadline. Brooklyn one of several teams interested.

What has he done this season to say he should be a max player though. I mean yea he's pretty good but he's not even a all star. For a guy going into FA he sure isnt playing like he is.

How are we going to re-sign him AND Dwight? JSmoove is already demanding a max contract.

He will take less to play with Dwight. I think they would both take less.

Nets going hard after Josh Smith, sources say. While they've discussed a trade for Ben Gordon, getting Josh is a bigger priority.
