“I had a bit of a laugh, really,” Smith said.
“I haven’t heard anything about it.
“I’m sure every team out there has players that they want to try and get at the end of the year. That certainly has nothing to do with the player or individual involved.
“I haven’t even thought about ringing my manager about it. I don’t really see it as a big deal, really. It’s rumour and innuendo, and I’ve got nothing to do with it.
“I’m sure I’ll have a joke about it with ‘Clarko’ (Hawks coach Alastair Clarkson) at some stage.
“I’m happy at Hawthorn. I’m contracted at Hawthorn to the end of next year so I want to stay at Hawthorn.”
Smith has played 188 games for the Hawks since making his debut against the Power in round seven, 2011.
