Free agent Marcus Smart remains unsigned, but it appears his market is picking up.
According to the Boston Globe’s Adam Himmelsbach, Smart met with two teams on Tuesday and is scheduled to meet with two more Wednesday in Vegas. The report adds guard is looking for a multi-year deal worth less than $15 million per season. In May he told ESPN he felt he was worth more than $12-14 million per season.
On Monday, Smart was asked where he stands with the Celtics.
“That’s what I want to know,” he said. “I have no clue. I can only control what I can control.”
The guard reportedly hasn’t had any contact with Celtics executives while in Vegas so far.
Since he is a free agent, the Celtics have the right to match any deal he gets offered and he could also sign the $6 million qualifying offer with the Celtics, but it appears he wants to cash in now.
