The Celtics are keeping guard Marcus Smart in Boston for the foreseeable future. Per reports from Shams Charania of the Athletic and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Smart has agreed to a four-year extension, worth $77 million. The new deal will reportedly start in the 2022-23 NBA season.
Smart, who has spent his entire career in Boston, averaged a career-high 13.1 points and 5.7 assists during the 2020-21 regular season.
Smart was an All-Defensive First Team selection in 2018-19 and 2019-20 and narrowly missed out on making an All-Defensive team in 2020-21. He has helped the Celtics reach the playoffs in each of his seven seasons with the team.
