Have the Sixers tried talking to the Hawks?

I'm new here, so bear with me. I know the Sixers are in desperate need of a center, but why not try talking to the Atlanta Hawks? Recently, there has been more talk that the Hawks would be willing to part ways with Josh Smith, but obviously not for nothing. The Hawks still have Johnson still locked up and Horford at the helm, and with Teague's play in the playoffs, he might soon be cracking the starting lineup. With an Iguodala for Smith deal, the Hawks get a great wing defender, that is perhaps much more willing to get less touches for the good of the team, benefitting both Horford, and Johnson. All this while still having the ability to put up 20+ points when asked.

For the Sixers, they get defense on the inside and out, arguably the most naturally gifted player in the leauge, Josh Smith, might very well be a year or two away from his own "Defensive Player of the Year" award. He can block shots, guard on the wing, and also guard much larger guys, as he has shown consistently. And I know what you're gonna say, he wastes too many offensive possessions. But the thing is, in Atlanta, Larry Drew is not Doug Collins. Doug Collins is a great coach, he'll actually discuss these kinds of things with Smith, unlike LD. With a great coach, and solid knowledge of his role, it's only a matter of time before Josh Smith blossoms into the best two way threat up and down the court.
