Marcus Smart 'Hurt and Disgusted' That Celtics Haven't Contacted Him

Marcus Smart 'Hurt and Disgusted' That Celtics Haven't Contacted Him

But league sources said the Celtics' perceived lack of interest in contacting Smart was not indicative of any change in their view of the talented young guard.

Though fellow 2014 lottery alumnus Dante Exum signed an eye-opening three-year, $33 million contract with Utah, for the most part the market has been bearish for restricted free agents.

While no deal is imminent, two National Basketball Association officials whose teams have had some level of interest in Marcus Smart are getting a strong sense that he will sign the $6.1 million qualifying offer made by the Celtics and become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2019. Moreover, he's reportedly frustrated by the lack of communication from general manager Danny Ainge.

In the past two offseasons, the Boston Celtics have been one team willing to make big moves. But now, as the clock ticks on his restricted free agency, Smart isn't feeling the love from Boston.

Trae Young, Grayson Allen get into scuffle during Summer League
The two first-round picks "scuffled" briefly Thursday evening during the third quarter of Utah's 92-87 win over Atlanta. Both players were given technical fouls, while Allen also received a personal foul for the initial contact.

Apparently, president Danny Ainge is yet to reach out to Smart and his representatives and it's angered the player.

From the Celtics' perspective, they have maintained throughout this process that they want to have Smart back next season, but they want to do it relative to what his market value is. "He's most disappointed that there has been no reaching out from their end". According to the source who spoke to the Boston Herald, Smart seems to have made his peace with that option, too. "And that doesn't bode well for the Celtics if it comes down to that".

"It's like Isaiah (Thomas) a year ago, Marcus has played through injury", the source said. He's been hurt and quite frankly disgusted by how this has gone. He's kind of over it.
