Josh Smith’s Tenure with Hawks Over?

When the cameras were on and media members stood two-deep around his locker, Hawks forward Josh Smith said what he was expected to say. He stunk, his team stunk and he hadn’t even had time to think yet about whether his Hawks’ career was over or impending free agency because the season had just ended.
“As I walked off the court, everything just sort of hit me,” Smith said late Friday night. “Just the uncertainty of what the future holds. Just thinking about all of the relationships I’ve had here and the people who’ve crossed my path since I’ve been here. I just … I just don’t know.”
Does he want to come back?
“The only thing I know is I want to be able to experience free agency. I want to explore my options and see what’s out there. I don’t have any certain idea what’s going to happen.”
He didn’t sound like a guy eager to return. The fact most in attendance Friday night didn’t sound eager for him to be back — screaming the usual “Nooooooooos!” when he pulled up for jumpers and booed when he missed — speaks volumes about the situation.
