05:47 PM ET 12.11 | Josh Smith has only known one organization in his nine-year NBA career, and from the sounds of it, he'd like to keep it that way. The Atlanta Hawks forward is an unrestricted free agent after this season, but despite being bandied about in trade rumors repeatedly over the past few years, he expressed interest in re-signing once the season ends. "I never said one time that I wanted to leave Atlanta," Smith said. "It was always rumors and things. The moves that they made (last summer) and the success that we're having, I am excited about what is going with this organization and I am considering strongly staying here. I haven't ever had any thoughts that I wanted to leave."

Don't go to LA, it's a sinking ship.
