06:37 PM ET 01.16 | A one-game suspension for Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith might be a minor mishap. Suspended for "conduct detrimental to the team," Smith will sit out Wednesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets. The suspension also might say something about his future with the team. Smith's agent, Wallace Prather, told CBS Sports' Ken Berger that his client is frustrated with the situation in Atlanta, though he's not yet asked for a trade. With free agency coming for Smith this summer, the Hawks may look into trading away their leading scorer. There's definitely going to be interest. Berger reports that both Prather and league sources believe a number of teams are curious about acquiring the versatile forward. "I want to be clear that I'm not pushing a trade," Prather told CBS Sports. "This is not a trade request or anything, but there are frustrations in Atlanta."
