Ferry likely to move Smith?
By Nick Borges
Josh Smith may be a member of the Atlanta Hawks after the Feb. 21 deadline, however it's doubtful he stays with the team beyond the season, reports ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard.
Ken Berger of CBSSports.com adds that he thinks Dallas may eventually get in the mix for Smith, who has also been linked with Boston, Brooklyn, Charlotte and Houston.

"Many executives around the league believe Atlanta GM Danny Ferry is intent on moving Josh Smith before the deadline. On Wednesday, three opposing GMs told me definitively that Ferry has decided not to re-sign Smith in free agency this summer and is trying hard to move him within the next week. ... 'Danny's a Spur,' one rival executive said, referring to Ferry's past work in San Antonio's front office. 'So he won't give him away, but if someone comes with a good offer, Josh Smith is gone. I don't think Danny takes the Nets' deal. I think someone has to do better than that.' "
