I wonder if its possible. Ainge signed Jeff Green in a similar clause citing that he gets more money if his rebounding numbers increase. That way, Smart will be more wary about his shooting.

I'm curious too. Boris Diaw had a Spurs deal containing incentives for keeping his weight below a certain number.  :)

You can put shooting incentives in a contract but beware of unintended consequences.  The season before last Moe Harkless had an incentive on his 3pt percentage.  So towards the end of the season when his percentage was above the incentive percentage, Harkless just stopped shooting 3s.

I wouldn't worry about it. Smart is better driving and posting up smaller guys.

Stopped shooting 3s?  You're only making the case stronger for giving Smart this clause. :)

Remember that the cap is set based on league revenues. We got caught by this last year when we had to trade AB because the cap projection didn't allow us to fit Hayward in. This is caused by the Finals and this Finals didn't even go 5 games so I expect the cap to be tighter than many may have thought. This could effect Smart's deal and what other teams may have to offer as well.

Iím not sure of last year but the issue was that smart was pretty much terrible at everything, including driving and posting up people.

And not just that, but Marcus is averaging more points per shot on threes than he is one twos.

Go after JJ redick. Problem solved. Avery Bradley is also out there. AB pretty much negates everything Smart brings to the table.

Have you been following AB's career? He is nowhere near the defender nor shooter that he used to be. Reddick is someone I would like to bring in though.

Also make him stand facing the corner when he misses threes.

Donít see a problem with that for Smart lol.

I wonder how creative you could get with incentives?

Something like $10K per 3PM if his shooting percentage is above 35% would be cool. That would make him work on his mechanics and his selection. If he shot it above that clip he would make over a million more.

His agent gets a part of his pay and would never agree with it.
