Despite a meeting that went very well for Josh Smith with the Detroit Pistons just after the start of free agency in the wee hours of the morning, the Altanta Hawks free agent is set to meet with his current team and the Houston Rockets on Monday.
From Marcus Spears of Yahoo! Sports:

Smith could be a solid player in the right situation, but teams need to be wary about sinking big money in to him as a free agent.
Atlanta already knows what they would be getting in Smith, so perhaps they would be the best options for his services. For the Rockets, they are looking for role players that can compliment Dwight Howard and Josh Smith doesn’t seem like one of those players.
Free agency kicked off just after midnight, so be sure to stay tuned to FanSided.com throughout the free agency period as we keep you up to date with the latest news and rumors from around the league.
