The Hawks have been linked to a number of players around the NBA, but Marcus Smart has been the most consistent name mentioned in rumors.
With the trade deadline just hours away, it is hard to believe the Celtics will deal him, especially considering their standing in the Eastern Conference playoff picture.
However, that hasn’t stopped NBA pundits from reporting the Hawks still have interest in Smart. Evan Massey most recently confirmed these interests once again.

Boston moving Smart doesn’t make much sense right now, particularly to Atlanta, who they’ll certainly battle in the final stretch before the postseason. However, we’ll see how much weight these reports hold in the coming hours.
