Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith would like to see his contract extended.  Smith currently has 1 year remaining on the contract that was signed in the summer of 2008 when the Hawks matched the offer given to Smith by the Grizzlies.

“I can’t get extended,” Smith said. “They didn’t give me the money; I had to go get it. That’s something I have to play it out and see how it goes from there.....“All I know is I have one more year on my contract so I will definitely be here....I just have to go into the offseason to better myself and do whatever I have to do to help this ballclub. I was an Atlanta Hawk after the trade deadline and I’m one now, so I have to look at some of the things I can do to help my basketball team win ballgames, especially in the postseason.”
