Marcus Smart will be a restricted free agent in July 1st but he said that he wants to remain with the Celtics.
“I'm here. They're already planning for me to be here," Smart said. "Those guys, I tip my hat to those guys. You don't see a lot of organizations that are as clear about their players as the way this organization does it”. The Celtics are positioned to match any reasonable offer for Smart this summer while he could also sign the $6 million qualifying offer and become an unrestricted free agent in July 2019. It will be an interesting summer for Smart and the Celtics while a change a scenery might boost his value.
