Bad look to be negotiating over salary right after a tough loss in which he was 1-10.
This is all about money laundering.

Reddick might be too much money, but I would love to see him off the bench as 6th man in Boston

I agree that would be some potent bench scoring. Maybe Smart signs with Philly and we sign Redick.


Hey Jaylen. I lost 519 Tommy Points betting on you guys and lost

He can think what he wants to think, but I have a hard time believing any team will offer him 14 million or more per year.

How much did Evan Turner get?

Different market this offseason, different type of player too.

He looks like a me-first, first-class idiot, saying this after going 1-10 in the biggest game of his life.

Just shut up, Marcus.

Way too much even for a market where teams were drowning in excess cap money to spend. The Cs didn't extend him and from reading Jackie, I'm pretty sure they won't pay him $14MM.

The Celtics can make a qualifying offer of nearly $6.1 million to Smart and can match any free-agent offer that is made by another team, but it's unlikely they will do so if the numbers climb too high. Boston discussed an extension with its gritty defensive specialist, team sources said, but the dollar figures were too far apart. The Celtics are resigned that Smart will opt for a bigger payday elsewhere instead of taking a hometown discount.
This is all about money laundering.

He does some good things and he does some bad things. I like him but I don't see 14 million reasons of like.

We have our stars. Everyone else on the team should be on a rookie/min/mle type deals.
We are in a position where good vets should want to come here and play for a champ on a discounted deal.

Plus the spending splurge of that offseason is still making teams tight on cap space/budget.

All those deals are still around and teams are far more gun shy with big offers for role players now.

Look at how badly the Deng/Mahnmi/Mosgov/Turner/Batum deals are thought of.

Naw one or two bigger deals is good to have just from a potential trade aspect. The discount of Tatum/Brown rooke scale contract should be utilized to the fullest they can without removing all flexibility for the future.

This is the problem with Smart.  He thinks that he is a good shooter and just doesn’t know his limitations.  If he would just play to his strengths, he would be worth the money.  But, he considers himself a go-to-scorer.  There’s the door brother!!

Makes the decision to keep Rozier over smart pretty easy

Need to get Kyrie signed ASAP. Last night was so evident how important he is
