Celtics Rumor: Josh Smith Wants Out, Prefers Boston

Danny Ainge does want to get younger and more athletic.  Now a younger, really athletic pseudo-star has expressed interest in coming here (among other places).

Hawks assess trade interest in Smith - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

Smith hasn’t requested a trade, but has privately told league friends that the Boston Celtics, New Jersey Nets, Houston Rockets and Orlando Magic are his preferred destinations should the Hawks decide to move him. "The relationship has run its course," said a league source with knowledge of the dynamic.

Hawks GM Rick Sund has long coveted Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen - two aging Celtics entering the final years of contracts - but Celtics GM Danny Ainge has yet to show an inclination to break up his core for next season.

A player wanting to make something happen doesn't necessarily have the ability to pick and chose his place to go, but then again Carmelo Anthony might have a different opinion about that.

Would you trade Ray Allen or Kevin Garnett for Josh Smith?
