According to reports, Josh Smith has visited with the Houston Rockets and the Detroit Pistons. The Rockets are also in the process of wooing Smith's former AAU team mate Dwight Howard. Houston may be looking to get the band back together and link them with their talented guard James Harden. The Atlanta Hawks also plan to make a pitch to Dwight Howard, but there are no known attempts to pair him up with Smith. Teams can meet and agree to terms but a contract cannot be signed until July 10.
The Atlanta Hawks have reportedly been in talks with Tyreke Evans of the Sacramento Kings. Evans is a player that can be a major factor for success in Atlanta, the move could also do wonders for his career as he has seemingly lost his role with the Kings. Evans, however, has reportedly received an offer from the New Orleans Pelicans that could land him up to $50 million and that may or may not be more than what Hawks GM Danny Ferry would be willing to pay.
There are moves being made like Andre Iguodala reportedly being offered big money by the Minnesota Timberwolves and Tony Allen agreeing to stay in Memphis but the Hawks have yet to make a dent in the game. It is being wondered by some if they are even going to jump in and make a play this year or if the dollars will be held for the free agent class next year.
