Marcus Smart Agrees To Four-Year, $52M Deal With Celtics


Marcus Smart #36 of the Boston Celtics high fives fans during the game against the Milwaukee Bucks in Game Seven of Round One of the 2018 National Basketball Association. Regardless of whether he's starting or coming off the bench, Smart's ability to facilitate, his suffocating defense and his unparalleled hustle will greatly magnify the edge that the Celtics play with.

Initially, Smart did not receive much contact from the team's front office when free agency opened on July 1. Due to the $13 million average annual value, many in the community view the deal as an overpay.

Smart was drafted by the Celtics with the No. 6 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. The team was content letting Smart sniff around for an outside offer sheet, believing he wouldn't find anything on the market they would refuse to match. In the playoffs, he averaged 9.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.7 steals per game. The talented guard from Oklahoma State has been an effective player in the league during his first four seasons, but his offensive challenges (namely in the area of shooting) make him a hard player to evaluate, even as no one would question his defensive impact on the game.

On Friday morning, the man responsible for keeping Smart in Boston chimed in to show some love for the 24-year-old guard. Not only did he lead the team in steals per game on that end of the court, Smart paved the way in deflections and charges drawn.
