Increasing Payroll Could Mean Hawks Will Shop Smith

After signing center Al Horford to a contract extension on Monday, many around the league believe that the Hawks will make forward Josh Smith available via trade at midseason.

Horford's new deal won't push Atlanta into luxury tax territory, but they are unlikely to be able to afford either a new deal for Jamal Crawford or a similar-salaried player.

A number of teams, including the Knicks, Nets, Pistons and Suns, have shown interest in Smith in the past.
