Josh Smith to Leave Atlanta Hawks?

Atlanta’s Josh Smith will be a restricted free agent July 1, and has been frequently mentioned, along with the Los Angeles Clippers’ Elton Brand, as a player who could be just what the Sixers need.

"I think about [being restricted] a little bit, but then I leave it in God’s hands," Smith said. "I’m just trying to play the season out. If I focus too much on it, I won’t be performing at a high level. Let’s see what happens in the offseason." []
