Contrary to a report from NBA.com, sources told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Josh Smith and the Hawks have had no contract talks and have not dismissed the possibility of giving him a max contract.

Smith has been a popular subject of trade rumors this season and every season in the last few years, and after a report from NBA.com had stated the Hawks were unwilling to meet Smith's asking price of a max contract, the AJC reports that both Smith and the team will wait until after the season to decide what route to go. The AJC also reports that the report of the Hawks "actively trying to trade" Smith is "not accurate."
