After seeing Noel gambling and turning down 4/70M, I think this makes sense.
I still hope he takes a bit of a pay-cut to stay with us especially if he values a chance at competing for a championship on an annual basis. Like, if SAC or another bad team offers him 4/56M, but the C's offer around 4/48M (also in hopes to stay under the luxury tax threshold for another year), I hope Smart chooses Boston's offer.
But yeah like if he gets offered something absurd like 4 years, 70M+ from another team, then Jackie is right, he's taking the money and running away from us (sadly). We aren't giving him that for sure.
