hawks suspend josh smithAtlanta Hawks Executive VP/GM Billy Knight today announced that he has suspended forward Josh Smith for the next two games, for conduct detrimental to the team.

The organization will not have any further statement regarding this matter.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution this morning had reported: "Josh Smith's profanity-laced outburst at the end of regulation of the Hawks' 109-104 overtime loss to Philadelphia on Sunday night could result in the third-year forward being suspended, Hawks coach Mike Woodson said. Smith went back and forth with Woodson on the bench over two plays in the final 40 seconds of regulation that resulted in Woodson telling Smith to hit the showers before the overtime session began."

The paper also reported: "As the players walked to the bench for the break between regulation and overtime, Smith said he told the coaches that he "wanted that last shot." An argument ensued, and Smith flung his headband to the floor on his way to the locker room."

The Hawks have a 28-49 record and are 13th in the Eastern conference. They will not make the playoffs, so their 2006-07 season ends in five games.

Smith for the season has averaged 16.1 points, 8.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.9 blocks per game. His three-point and free throw shooting still needs improvement, but aside from that Smith is one of the most versatile, talented young players in the league.
