Josh Smith Trade Rumors Now Include Celtics, Magic, Rockets And Nets

We've been hearing and dismissing for weeks now rumors that the Atlanta Hawks are looking to trade Josh Smith, but the reports are starting to gain serious national attention. Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski reported early Tuesday that Smith wouldn't be all that upset by a Hawks trade, and has listed the Boston Celtics, Orlando Magic, Houston Rockets and New Jersey Nets as his preferred landing spots.

Smith's friend Dwight Howard plays in Orlando for the time being, while a dashing global billionaire runs the Nets. I don't know why he'd want to play for the Rockets or Celtics. For what it's worth, Peachtree Hoops thinks this is all just a bunch of hoo-ha.

Wojnarowski cites league sources who imply the relationship between the Hawks and Smith is only souring and that the team has to break up its roster somehow, but the biggest piece -- Joe Johnson's contract -- isn't going anywhere for a long time.
