I don't know what DA and ownership are willing to pay Marcus, but he is #1 on my list among Smart, Monroe and Baynes. I think the C's may be in "contender" land and a destination for a 15 MPG big or 2 who are looking for a shot at a ring and willing to take vet minimum or close. Not sure who, but I would think that a Baynes quality big shouldn't be impossible to find. And Theis will be back. If we secure Smart, it would be great to keep Baynes or Monroe, but I think DA can replace them.
I think Smart has unique value and, along with the other Marcus, adds toughness along with skill. Smart will not be a go-to scorer on the court next year in any lineup -- as he sorta was in stretches earlier this season. Thus -- he won't shoot as much. Really want to keep him.
