Danny Ainge Reiterates Celtics’ Desire To Bring Back Marcus Smart

And even if tensions may be a bit high and Smart has met with other teams, it appears as though the C's are intent on keeping him around and matching any offer he gets, even if it means going over the luxury tax threshold.

Marcus Smart has made it clear that he entered the offseason feeling optimistic about the possibility of a long-term deal with the Boston Celtics, and the result has been a seemingly strained relationship between the point guard and the team.

Sacramento's interest stems in part from having a roster that has struggled mightily when it comes to defending shooters on various points on the floor.

The Kings offered LaVine a four-year, $78 million contract which the Bulls matched nearly immediately.

It's unclear if Denver did not place any bids or if they were simply beat out by teams higher than them in the draft order. Alexander (6-2, 195) was considered a candidate for San Francisco because of his rare size and length for the position .

And at that price tag, it is far from a given that the Celtics will match the offer. The Sacramento Kings are also reportedly interested, and the Celtics are believed to want Smart back, but their salary-cap situation might prevent them from re-signing the 24-year-old combo guard.

Smart was drafted with the sixth overall pick by Boston in the 2014 National Basketball Association draft. Awaiting their seed in the tournament portion of play in the Las Vegas group, the Celtics closed strong in a dominant performance last night against the Charlotte Hornets.

Smart said he was meeting with his agent Happy Walters.
