According to Yahoo! Sports, J-Smoove wouldn’t mind playing in a number of NBA cities other than Atlanta starting next season: “[Josh] Smith hasn’t requested a trade, but has privately told league friends that the Boston Celtics, New Jersey Nets, Houston Rockets and Orlando Magic are his preferred destinations should the Hawks decide to move him. ‘The relationship has run its course,’ said a league source with knowledge of the dynamic. There’s been growing acrimony between Smith and the organization, sources said, largely because of the feeling that Smith has been too convenient of a scapegoat. Smith had one of his most complete seasons for the Hawks, averaging 16.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 3.3 assists. Payroll is an issue for the Hawks, too, and Smith’s contract – which has two years and $25.6 million remaining – is an attractive target for management to unload, if, for no other reason, than the five years, $110 million left on Joe Johnson’s(notes) deal is far more difficult to move. The Hawks have looked to identify veteran players near the end of their contracts, sources said, but have had no serious discussions on trading Smith. ‘They’re looking for a change,’ one Eastern Conference executive said. ‘They would die to be rid of Joe Johnson’s contract or move Smith, but they won’t give [Smith] away. They want something in return.’”
