GS/MN/ATL Josh Smith Trade Rumor

I'd like to start off with a disclaimer that this is a completely unvarified rumor.

Over at Twolvesblog.com there is a rumor that was either started or seen somewhere else about a 3-way trade involving your Warriors, the Wolves, and Atlanta. Apparently the wolves are involved because we have the 1st round picks to complete the deal.

The details go a little something like this (with some speculation as to how it would fit):

Wolves give:

Rashad McCants (to GS) Rodney Carney (to GS) 2009 1st round pick(s)  (to ATL)(we have Miami's, Boston's, and Utah's), and possibly a $1.4 million TPE.

GS gives:

Brandan Wright (to MN) Marco Belinelli (to MN) Al Harrington (to ATL)

ATL gives:

Josh Smith (sign-and-trade to GS)

Josh Smith wasn't specifically named in the rumor, but he's the only player on Atlanta's roster that makes sense for a trade like this.  It makes sense that they would do this, seeing as how Josh Smith and Mike Woodson don't like each either and they're probably giving him lowball offers. This way they get something in return if he is indeed refusing to re-sign with them longterm rather than having him walk as an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

I like this trade from a wolves perspective, what do you guys think about it?

Also have you heard anything about this rumor?
