Hawks add veteran big man Smith 2009-08-26

Hawks add veteran big man Smith  2009-08-26
The Hawks signed Joe Smith to a one-year deal Tuesday for the veteran's minimum salary (approximately $1.3 million), rounding out the frontcourt rotation with the veteran big man they've sought all summer.

"When you're a free agent, that's key," Smith said. "How a team recruits you and ... the last month or so the Hawks have been coming hard at me, and that shows how much they wanted me down here and what they think I can bring to this situation."

The Hawks will be Smith's 10th NBA team. The No. 1 overall pick in the 1995 draft finished last season with Cleveland, the team that ended the Hawks' season in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The 6-foot-10 power forward saw action in 13 playoff games, averaging 5.5 points and 3.7 rebounds. During the regular season, he averaged 6.5 points and 4.7 rebounds and shot nearly 50 percent (.496) from the floor.

Smith's 14 years in the NBA give him experience and perspective that many of his new teammates might find valuable.
