Report: Marcus Smart Agrees to Four-Year, $52 Million Contract To Remain With Celtics

The Celtics have re-signed 24-year-old guard Marcus Smart to a four-year, $52 million contract. 

In a long-awaited deal, the Boston Celtics have re-signed Marcus Smart to a four-year, $52 million contract, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

Smart and his agent, Happy Walters, met with the Celtics in Boston on Thursday to finalize the contract.

Smart was a restricted free agent coming off of the 2017-18 season. The 24-year-old was drafted sixth overall by Boston in 2014. 

In June, the Celtics reportedly offered the guard a $6.05 million qualifying offer but Smart was seeking a contract in the $12-14 million range annually. With Smart's cap hold at $13.6 million, concerns floated that the guard would be too pricey for the Celtics to keep.
