As we noted Saturday, Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith is prepared to test the free-agent market before deciding for which team he will play next season and beyond. He finds himself in an unsual spot, as he hopes to sign a max contract but is unlikely to find such a commitment from any team. His only hope for a massive payoff likely would be if two teams somehow get into a bidding war for his services.
