Hawks Offered Josh Smith Three-Year, $45M Extension

The Atlanta Hawks offered Josh Smith a three-year, $45 million contract extension before the season.

According to sources, the talks never got serious because Smith made it clear that he wanted to make it to free agency.

League rules on extensions kept the Hawks from offering anything longer than three extra years during the season.

The Hawks then tried hard to trade Smith prior to February's deadline.
