There are a lot of reasons to believe he'll sign back with the Celtics next year at reasonable money.

I look at it this way: which GMs are comfortable enough and have the job security to spend big on a role player who shoots 30-something percent from the field? That takes not just guts but major organizational support. There aren't many GMs outside of Ainge that have that level of job security.

Boston is the right place for Smart, given that the organization and the fans know he's a productive player even given his poor shooting percentages, and given that their GM has lots of institutional backing.

Makes you wonder why the Celts would want to bring back that player.

Because he helps your team win. That's the point: many GMs may recognize Smart's value, but few would have the guts to put big money and their reputations on the line for a player who's such a poor shooter, even if they think he can help their team.

Maybe the C's are fortunate that Smart didn't sign an extension before the season started.

Since there isn't going to be a 2016 spending spree, 6-8 million?

maybe 3/20M? My guess would be he takes the QO.

I'd probably go higher and change it to 10M if he's traded before DL.

That was during the Smart preseason hype. The guesses in this thread are from December when Smart had shown little to no improvement.

I can't imagine that a team would be willing to offer him big money due to his poor shooting and off court issues.

I would only bring him back if he's willing to accept a salary between 6-8 million. If not, then let him walk.

the only teams that can usually offer big $$ are poor teams. But Marcus' value is really only on a playoff/good team who can afford to hide his poor shooting on the court.

A team that would pay marcus big $$ to start and jack up 20 shots would lose a ton of games...

IMO marcus has more value to the celtics than other teams.

What will the MLE be? Smart is worth more than MLE but not by much. Remember when AB signed that 8m/yr contract? I think Smart is worth the modern day equivalent of that. Is that around 10m/yr now?

Mostly he gets less with Ainge shopping him for a pick.

At this point it is apparent that Smart is no more than a defensive specialist with limited offensive capabilities. I still like him but considering the upcoming luxury tax issues I would not offer him anything above 6-8 million.  I'm also sure that he won't get more than that from any other team as well.

Once the ties are cut with CBS .....what have players become on other teams .   ET and Crowder ...do GM's think our players now will play as well on their club ....one without CBS at the helm.

Smarts career might last longer on Celtics for LOW contract deal in Boston where he can fit in , than to wither away in no man land on teams that can't utilize his best abilities.  His potential drop off , might be greater and faster off the Celtics roster . If I was Smart I d be doing my best to remain where I m needed.

Before the immature picture whacking incident, I didn't think Smart was worth any more than the MLE. Now, who knows? Maybe less. He is an all-time, worst ever shooter in NBA history. He tends to be a ball stopping facillitator on offense that doesn't move the around and prefers to clear out and play a two man pick and roll. And he turns the ball over a lot. Heis an okay rebounder and plays elite defense. I just don't see wherehe is worth more than $8 million a year in today's market.
