Marcus Smart is hopeful that he can come to terms with the Celtics on an extension in the near future according to Shams Charania.
Smart has declared his intentions to remain in Boston, but says no talks have taken place yet as the October 16 deadline looms. If an extension isn’t signed, Smart will become a restricted free agent this coming summer which means the threat of him signing an offer sheet elsewhere intensifies. He’s a mid-to-late round value player to keep an eye on.
