With Brad Stevens taking over as president of basketball operations, the Boston Celtics will look to shake things up after a disappointing finish to the season.
One player who could be on the move is Marcus Smart, who has one year remaining in his current deal with the franchise.
According to Brian Robb of MassLive.com, Marcus Smart’s value is not in an all-time high after having a mediocre season despite averaging career-highs in points (13.1 PPG) and assists (5.7 APG).
“Marcus Smart is a useful trade chip but he only has one year left on his deal so his value is limited on the open market. One league source told MassLive that getting a late first round pick for Smart would be a challenge unless Boston took back an unattractive contract as part of the deal,” Robb wrote.
The Celtics will need to make tough decisions in the offseason if they want to build their roster around Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.
