Don't see a reason to extend Smart unless it is on the low end of his salary range.  Available cap space next offseason will be limited.  Restricted free agents are drawing even less interest than usual.  Good defense, limited offense players don't draw big offers.

That's disturbing if that's the case - which I don't believe it is.

We're over the cap, so it's not like we can easily replace what Smarts brings to the table in free agency. If there's a deal to be reached now, it should get done.
Thank you, Isaiah!!!

This couldn't be any further from the truth lol.

Why would Ainge let Smart walk for absolutely nothing, without a tendered offer, when we're going to be pretty much over the max anyways.

Where did Aldridge say this?

If true, I'm pumped.

The NUCLEAR WINTER IS COMING.....(got reference)
Teams are not flush with $$ anymore and so many bad contracts have been given away since the cap rise. DA is smart and may just wait bc the teams that would have given Smart a large contract are dropping like flies and this summer has some REALLY good FA's.

Lock him up to Harris money.  He is just as good a player, if not better overall.

If his shot is indeed fixed and he keep hitting shots then indeed we are going to have to pay him.  It is early but with his improved athletic ability and speed, coupled with his tenacity and fire and a reliable shot ( it is early) I think he is a solid keeper.

 He really was asking for someone to do the math here. He said it will be similar to what Ross got for the Raptors. 3 years 33 million, however that was in 2015.

 Whatever the percentage of the cap was in 2015, figure out the cap increase and that's around what Smart will get. So what closer to 14 million per year.

Link? Or at least tell us WHERE he said it.

If it goes to restricted free agency who would be the C's biggest threat at overpaying for him? Sixers? They'll have plenty of cap space next summer.

Shams is reporting that there have not been any extension talks with Smart.

Sixers wouldn't want Smart.  They need shooters around Simmons.

Lakers (if they can't create the next Lebron super team), Mavericks (if they miss out on Boogie and move on from Seth Curry), Bulls, and Hawks.
Thank you, Isaiah!!!

If we get a similar percentage of the cap to the ross contract (aka 13-15 mil a year now) for Smart, I'm doing backflips. In a world where Evan Turner gets what he got, I'm absolutely fine with Smart for that number.

The thing is this isn't actually the same world as when Evan Turner got his contract. the cap is expanding much slower, there's not nearly as much money in the league.

Right.

A common misconception about Evan Turner, or Crabbe receiving said overloaded contracts, is because the cap was supposedly going to increase by a few million, thus freeing up extra room for other teams.

Unfortunately, for us, that isn't the case, and I fear the Mavs will look at DSJ/MS as an unstoppable backcourt and overpay, especially with Smart's ties to his hometown Dallas.
Thats what I'm worried about. The Sixers and the Bucks.

Sign for solid money or bank on Brown/Rozier to fill in the gap, and save the money for Brown's extension.

We might have to choose next offseason. Smart might need to take a kind deal now or be gone at the deadline.
