Marcus Smart garnering interest from 4 teams

Williams to sit again as Boston Celtics do everything to keep him on track

As a restricted free agent, Smart has not received much interest on the open market. It was taken Monday night, Scotto said.

Marc Smart wants more than $12 million-$14 million annually.

However, according to Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe, the Celtics are simply waiting for a team to make an offer to Smart so that they can match it, lending credence to the fear opposing teams have that they can't have Smart for themselves no matter what they do.

Smart had surgery on March 16 (Mar. 17, PHL time) to fix a torn ligament in his right thumb and returned in Game 5 of the Celtics' first-round series against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Drake takes 7 spots on Billboard Top 10, breaking Beatles' record
All 25 tracks from " Scorpion ", which was released online June 29, managed to climb onto the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. The rapper broke his own record of most singles charting in the Hot 100 with 27 - including all 25 tracks from " Scorpion ".

Smart just wrapped up his fourth season in the National Basketball Association, averaging 10.2 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.8 assists, and 1.3 steals, but continued his four-year trend of shooting below 37 percent from the field over the course of the season.

Smart is considered an elite defender and a strong locker room presence, but he is only a 36 percent career shooter. Throughout the season, he's been the spark plug for the Celtics, whether he was starting or coming off the bench, and that's something Boston will need if they plan to get back to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010 in what is a wide open Eastern Conference at the moment.

Instead, he's "hurt and disgusted" by the Celtics' handling of his restricted free agency. 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).
