ATLANTA (AP) - Free agent forward Joe Smith is the Atlanta Hawks' free-agent answer to the team's lack of inside depth.

The Hawks have signed Smith, a 14-year veteran and unrestricted free agent.

The 6-foot-10, 225-pound Smith will join center Zaza Pachulia as the top inside backups behind starters Al Horford and Josh Smith for the Hawks, who advanced to the second round of the playoffs last season.

Terms of the deal were not released on Tuesday.

Smith, 34, played 21 games with the Cleveland Cavaliers last season after starting the season with Oklahoma City. He averaged 5.5 points and 3.7 rebounds in 13 postseason games with the Cavaliers. He averaged 6.5 points and 4.7 rebounds in the regular season.
