Celtics Guard Marcus Smart Seems Willing To Play Center In 2019-2020


Point guard Marcus Smart often is referred to as the Boston Celtics’ spiritual leader, and rightfully so.

The 25-year-old represents the ultimate team-first mentality and showed that once again on Tuesday.

Smart was answering fan questions on Twitter in exchange for donations to the Marcus Smart YounGameChanger Foundation. He was asked if he thinks he’d play center down the stretch during the 2019-20 season. His answer won’t surprise you.

“Pleaseeee,” Smart responded. “Like taking candy from a baby.”

Smart is notoriously strong on the block for a player of his size. If Brad Stevens needs someone to help the new-look frontcourt at any point, Smart would likely be a viable option.

The Oklahoma State product posted 8.9 points, four assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists during his fifth season in Boston.
