Either way, we have a pretty good idea of where former team president Danny Ainge feels stands on the matter.
Smart on Saturday shared a tweet congratulating teammate Jayson Tatum on winning a gold medal with Team USA at the Tokyo Olympics. Barstool Sports writer Dan Greenberg quote-tweeted the tweet, openly hoping for news of the Celtics signing Smart to an extension.
Ainge, in a seeming endorsement, retweeted Greenberg’s comment.
Take a look:
This, along with last week’s reports of Boston and Smart potentially working out a lucrative extension, indicate the fiery point guard might in the Celtics’ long-term plans after all.
Smart, 27, is scheduled to become a free agent next offseason. He averaged 10.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game over his first seven seasons in Boston.
