Smart, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, was told that Boston might not be able -- or willing -- to afford the $12-14 million a year price tag that he reportedly has been seeking.

"To be honest, I'm worth more than 12-14 million," Smart told ESPN. "Just for the things I do on the court that don't show up on the stat sheet. You don't find guys like that. I always leave everything on the court, every game. Tell me how many other players can say that."

Not liking this statement but I'll just leave it to Danny to negotiate and make moves.

He really has some nerve going out there and claiming that he's worth 14 million a year after his atrocious performance in Game 7.
Jack of all trades, master of none.

Wow, i am his biggest fan, but this has to be one of the dummest statements ever. You play a bad game 7, lose, and on the same day, you come up with this...come on
I would love for him to stay, he is chanpinship caliber guy, but 14 mil, danny is not givong that money, 2 year 25 would be max for me.

Too much money unfortunately. He is my favourite player on the team. I'll be sad to see him go.

A trademark of ainge is to never overpay for bench players.

Either smart changes his tune or he goes. Then again,this might be a negotiating ploy...,maybe.  :P
I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy — not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

If it is a negotiating ploy, it's a rather stupid one at a stupid time.  This after hurting his hand doing something else stupid.

If another team values him more, so be it...but this team next year has Finals written all over it, with or without Smart.

Smartest business statement Smart could make.  If you didn’t like “back up the Brink’s Truck” you shouldn’t like this.   I don’t like it, but I can’t blame him for it.  Danny knows his limit and I trust him.  If Danny isn’t willing to go high, I hope he can pull off an S&T.   If nothing else, Cs need some tradeable salary if they want to be in the mix for Leonard, Davis, Towns...
