Josh Smith calls Hawks fans 'bandwagoners'

The interplay between Smith and the Philips Arena crowd was lively throughout the night. Smith, an Atlanta native who played his first nine NBA seasons with the Hawks, was booed loudly whenever he touched the ball. The catcalls grew louder in the third quarter, after Smith drained a 3-pointer that rattled around the rim several times before dropping in. Smith then shushed the crowd by placing his finger over his lips as the Hawks called timeout. “I mean, those fans are fickle, very fickle and bandwagoners,” Smith said. “It really doesn’t mean anything to me.”

The 76ers have contacted the Atlanta Hawks about their desire to trade point guard Jeff Teague or backup Dennis Schroder, a league source said. The source said the Sixers have not made a trade offer for either of the two. Mutliple league sources said they don’t expect the Sixers to make a serious push for one of the point guards before the Feb. 18 trade deadline.
Atlanta reportedly has had trade discussions with Teague’s hometown Indiana Pacers. The Pacers would consider giving Atlanta point guard George Hill, according to reports. The Orlando Magic, for shooting guard Victor Oladipo, could be another destination for Teague, according to reports. A league source believes the Utah Jazz would be solid place for Teague. However, the source believes the Jazz would have to give up Rodney Hood to make the deal work. He doesn’t think Utah is prepared to part ways with the 6-foot-8 shooting guard.
