The Milwaukee Bucks have been in pursuit of Josh Smith, with Monta Ellis as the most likely trade piece going to the Atlanta Hawks.

But Smith reportedly would like to play with both Ellis and Brandon Jennings, which has caused the Bucks to change their strategy about trade pieces.

The Bucks would likely need to trade a combination of Ersan Ilyasova and the expiring contract of Samuel Dalembert as the main pieces for a trade to work with the Hawks for Smith.

Smith, Ellis and Jennings will all be free agents of various kinds this offseason.
