CBS Sports' Ken Berger reports that the Atlanta Hawks and general manager Danny Ferry have not been blown away by any offers they have received for forward and soon to be free agent Josh Smith.

Particularly because of the uncertainty surrounding Smith and his free agent status.

Now we have previously advocated that holding onto Smith at least until the offseason might be Ferry's best bet. However, Berger points out one of the pitfalls.
