The Atlanta Hawks are doing whatever they can to get rid of Josh Smith before tomorrow’s NBA trade deadline. What they are not trying to do is seem desperate and accepting of any deal that gets thrown at them.

As of now, this strategy has yet to pay off.

Hawks GM Danny Ferry has already made it public that Smith will definitely be traded before time runs out. So how can he expect to not get only the worst offers imaginable when the whole league knows he needs to let this guy go no matter what?

CBS Sports Ken Krieger explains the situation:

“Hawks GM Danny Ferry has told prospective trade partners he is not interested in taking back future salary and he won’t do a deal ‘just to do it,’ one person familiar with the discussions said.”

The Hawks better have a back-up plan (maybe a sign-and-trade in July?) to get what they want because it looks like Danny Ferry thought Smith was worth a lot more than what he actually is.
