Boston Celtics Guard Marcus Smart "Frustrated" With Organization

Boston Celtics Guard Marcus Smart

Marcus Smart and his camp are still waiting to hear from the Boston Celtics in free agency.

A source who spoke with Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald said that the Celtics haven't even reached out to Smart about a contract since free agency began on July 1, and that Smart sees it as an insult.

The 24-year-old guard, who is now a restricted free agent, is likely to accept Boston's $6.1 million qualifying offer for 2018-19, according to a report from NBC Sports.

On the eve of their first summer league game, the Celtics announced on Thursday that they have signed first-round draft pick Robert Williams. "The last contact was a few days before free agency started".

President of basketball operations Danny Ainge has declined to speak on the matter. We can now include the 24-year-old Smart in that group.

It was a master class from the champion, and one that went according to plan. "What happened in my last fight?" he asked. Miocic expects a similar outcome against Cormier, who the champ describes as "A humble guy who likes to fight".

The Enquirer also gave Cohen sign-off power on stories about Trump before they ran, according to The Washington Post . His attorneys have advised him to stop talking about the case, Cohen explained, and so he's not commenting at all.

From the Celtics' perspective, they have maintained throughout this process that they want to have Smart back next season, but they want to do it relative to what his market value is. Moreover, he's reportedly frustrated by the lack of communication from general manager Danny Ainge.

Based on the source's comments, Smart sounds prepared to eventually accept his qualifying offer, then plan to move on from the Celtics and explore unrestricted free agency next summer. Neither Clint Capela nor Jabari Parker have received a ton of interest.

Boston's only tangible bid remains their $6.05 million qualifying offer. "He's most disappointed that there has been no reaching out from their end".

The source also said that Smart is willing to take a one-year deal from the Celtics, but "that doesn't bode well for the Celtics if it comes down to that".
