Smart joins Boston.
Shamese Carania, a reporter for The Athletic, reported on the 17th (hereinafter Korean time) that the Boston Celtics agreed to extend a four-year, $77.1 million contract with Marcus Smart. Smart, who was scheduled to be an FA after the next season, will be able to stay with Boston until the 2025-2026 season.
Smart, who was named to the Boston Celtics as the sixth-ranked player in the first round of the 2014 rookie draft, led the team by playing as the team’s main player for the next seven years. Although he missed many games last season due to injury, he appeared in 48 games and recorded 13.1 points and 5.7 assists per game.
He has not shown much strength in offense, but is considered to be the best in the league in defense. As a locker room leader, he is also an excellent player who leads the team.
Will Boston franchise star Smart be able to repay the team’s extended contract? It is worth noting what Smart will look like as the team leader next season.
