The Boston Celtics have every intention of becoming a younger, more athletic team in the near future.

But that future does not include Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith.

A league source told CSNNE.com on Monday night that the Celtics have had "no discussions whatsoever" with the Atlanta Hawks about acquiring Smith. The same source added there were no plans to open up such dialogue any time in the near future.

"You can never say never," the source said, "but there's nothing going on there."

A report by Yahoo! Sports indicated that a source close to Smith said that if he were to demand a trade, Boston would be one of the teams Smith would have interest in playing for.

The report also made it clear that Smith has not requested a trade.

When you look at the Celtics' roster, the C's don't have a lot of players to offer up as trade bait.

The two that stick out the most are Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen.
