The Hawks elected not to trade Josh Smith, who was widely expected to be the one marquee player moved before the deadline. Smart decision?
Should the Hawks have traded Josh Smith?

He’s not going to stay anyway, why not get something out of him? Now you’ll have no real star next year. Solid pieces in Horford, Teague, and Korver, but no star. I just don’t understand it.
I think they definitely need to move him, but the only trade I heard for him was him for Monte or some other trade with the Bucks. I’d rather deal with him for a few extra months and have tons of cap space and make a run this summer than be stuck with Monte “Have it all” Ellis, who is basically a smaller Josh Smith.
How are there 86 people who believe it was smart of them to hold onto Josh Smith knowing he’s gone in the summer?
We will be gone but if there weren’t any good deals they did the right thing.
