Josh Smith has been arguably the one of the most coveted free agent in the NBA after Dwight Howard. The Detroit Pistons supposedly had a five hour long meeting with Josh Smith. The Houston Rockets are considering adding Josh Smith as a third superstar with Dwight Howard, or he’s being considered their back up plan.
