Marcus Smart 'Hurt and Disgusted' By Celtics' Silence

Marcus Smart 'Hurt and Disgusted' By Celtics' Silence

They have thus far added just first-round pick Robert Williams and free agent guard Brad Wanamaker, and the focus has shifted nearly entirely toward the status of guard Marcus Smart, a restricted free agent.

Marcus Smart has indeed grown frustrated with the Celtics' approach to his restricted free agency, believing the team has not treated him like the valuable asset he is - increasing the chances he would return to the team on a one-year qualifying offer before testing unrestricted free agency next season.

On the eve of their first summer league game, the Celtics announced on Thursday that they have signed first-round draft pick Robert Williams.

But Smart is not hugely bothered about the limited prospects he has in this market, his main issue is in receiving no contact from the front office since he became a free agent on July 1.

National Basketball Association free agency opened on July 1. According to the report from the Boston Herald, Smart is waiting on a three-to-four year deal.

Daraa province encompasses most of the area held by rebels in the southwest, one of their last remaining strongholds in Syria. The offensive has swept into swathes of rebel-held territory in Deraa province, helped by heavy Russian air strikes.

Apparently, president Danny Ainge is yet to reach out to Smart and his representatives and it's angered the player. "He's most disappointed that there has been no reaching out from their end".

Smart was one of several players to receive a qualifying offer on June 29, just before free agency opened.

The restricted free agent guard reportedly has yet to hear from Boston's front-office this summer, and is said to be "hurt and disgusted" by the lack of communication in regards to a possible contract extension.

"It's like Isaiah (Thomas) past year, Marcus has played through injury", the source said. But you know what else?
