Smith Set to Join Hawks
Former No. one draft pick Joe Smith has agreed to a one-year deal with the Atlanta Hawks, according to a report. After playing parts of the past two season for Cleveland, Smith will make the vet’s minimum this year in Atlanta. With career averages of 11.6 ppg and 6.7 rpg and ’08-09 averages of 6.6 and 4.6, Smith is most well-known for costing Minnesota multiple draft picks after David Stern caught the Wolves offering him an illegal deal. The Hawks will be his 10th team in 14 seasons.
