this situation is pretty simple here. Smart wants 17million$ or so a year, celtics say you are worth 10-12million$ go out and see if you are worth 17million$


I would wager the QO is less, about 6-8 range.

Two things:

Only Dallas, Atlanta, and Sac have enough cap room to outbid the QO. Only Sac have enough to give Smart a deal above 12million

Question: Can we split off some of the MLE and add it to the QO dollar amount and sign Smart to a 1 year deal? Then

We wouldn't need the MLE because we have Smart's Bird Rights, as he's been here for 3 years or more. We can sign him to any amount up to the max at any length up to 5 years. So we could feasibly sign him to a one-year, $9M deal to stay under the cap and keep him happy then give him a longer and more lucrative deal next offseason.

If Smart is truly going to take the QO so he can test the market next summer but otherwise wants to stay in Boston, I think the idea of a 2 year deal makes more sense.

If he thinks he's worth $16 mil and will take the QO to prove it, that would come to $22 mil over two years. So a 2-year deal at $11 mil per year gives him the same pay out over those seasons but a lot more guaranteed money and is probably pretty close to what the Celtics are offering on a longer term deal.

Are we in trouble now that Bjelica backed out on Philly and they have a MLE available?

No. We would match an MLE deal in a second.

They also only have their room exception available, which at $4.45 for two years million is not going to be at all attractive to Smart.

The deal Parker signed is not allowable while Smart is a restricted free agent. Thatís why Milwaukee did Parker a favor and made him an unrestricted free agent before he signed with Chicago.

a ~10 million dollar salary next year would be useful in an Anthony Davis deal, I starting to think a 3 year 30-33 million dollar deal with 3rd year somewhat Non guaranteed with be a valuable trade chip
