Marcus Smart will remain with the Boston Celtics after signing a four year extension on Monday. The extension is worth $77 million dollars. Smart counted his seasons with the team via a tweet sent on Monday. He used the four-leaf clover to represent his past seven seasons with the Celtics, plus the four more.
Smart has played his entire seven-year career with the Celtics, who drafted him sixth overall in 2014. Smart averaged career highs in points (13.1), assists (5.7), blocks (0.5) and minutes (32.9) for the Celtics last season.
Smart isn’t known as a solid scorer however, his defensive ability has made him one of the most valuable all-around players in the NBA. Smart was named to the All-Defensive first team in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons.
Smart usually comes off the bench for the Celtics but without a true point guard on the roster, he could be inserted to the starting lineup to begin the season.
