Danny Ainge spoke to the media on Wednesday morning before the Boston Celtics’ Summer League practice and said that Marcus Smart remains the team’s top priority.
“We’re all here watching all the teams play in the summer league, watching different guys work out. But our priority remains the same. Our priority is still Marcus in free agency, and that’s where we are.”
Beyond that, Ainge declined to comment on the matter, but it was apparent that the Smart negotiations are atop Boston’s free agency to-do list. Other than a constant stream of rumors and sources, the situation remains largely unchanged.
