Marcus Smart Reportedly on Trade Block After Celtics Land Gordon Hayward

Gordon Hayward and the Boston Celtics agreed to terms on a four-year, $128 million max contract Tuesday night, according to The Vertical’s Shams Charania, and the reigning Atlantic Division champions may not be done making moves.

Citing a source, the Norman Transcript‘s Fred Katz reported the Celtics have “already begun contacting teams about picking up Marcus Smart” as they attempt to carve out a max-salary slot to sign Hayward.
