Celtics Reportedly Discussed A Marcus Smart Trade With Atlanta Hawks

CBS Local


Article Summary:

The Celtics have even had trade talks surrounding Smart, as Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer reported on Thursday. Before the Hawks dealt Cam Reddish to the Knicks, Atlanta reportedly discussed a deal that would have sent Reddish and sharpshooter Kevin Heurter to Boston for Smart. Fischer added later in his piece that it would take “Significant value in return” for the Celtics to deal Smart at the deadline. The Celtics are enjoying a bit of an upswing at the moment, and though they’re sitting at just 25-24 on the season, the team’s defense remains one of the best in the NBA. Smart has a lot to do with that, and given the extension he was given in the offseason, the Celtics would probably prefer to see if he can continue to be a bully on defense while he gets more comfortable as Boston’s primary ball handler.
