The Celtics and Marcus Smart are "seriously" engaged in contract talks that would pay him $46-$50 million over four years.
Smart was "disgusted" earlier this offseason that the Celtics were not pursuing him for what he thought he was worth, which was $14-16 million per season. Looks like he will have to settle for less than that, but still not a bad haul for the defensive minded guard to remain on a title contending team. The Celtics backcourt is now looking awfully crowded for the upcoming season.
