Blakely: Kings preparing offer for Marcus Smart

Boston Celtics draft pick Robert Williams at the team's training facility in Boston Tuesday

Free-agent point guard Marcus Smart would consider a four-year contract offer the Boston Celtics had on the table last October, the Boston Herald's Mark Murphy reported Tuesday. It was taken Monday night, Scotto said. The fact that they wanted Zach Lavine is pretty much your gold-plated guarantee that their front office and ownership is too clueless to understand what Smart's worth. "We're all here watching all the teams play in the summer league, watching different guys work out".

Has Croatia ever won the World Cup?
She added that she is flying back to Croatia and would be watching the game as part of a joint birthday football celebration. Flights from across Europe on Tuesday and Wednesday were packed with England fans scrambling to make the last-minute trip.

Boston would be able to match whatever offer Smart receives. And even if tensions may be a bit high and Smart has met with other teams, it appears as though the C's are intent on keeping him around and matching any offer he gets, even if it means going over the luxury tax threshold. He was limited to 54 games due to hand injuries, which included needing surgery on a torn thumb ligament. He's also been a statisically bad three-point shooter, attempting 4.5 three-pointers per game and making just 29 percent of his shots from there. "Our priority is still Marcus in free agency, and that's where we are". But his offers over the past two years to Miami's Tyler Johnson, Portland's Allen Crabbe, Houston's Donatas Motiejunas and Washington's Otto Porter Jr. were all matched (although the Nets were eventually able to aquire Crabbe in a trade).
