Topic: What could the Celtics get in a Marcus Smart sign-and-trade?

Because it is a slow news night.

We are at that point in the summer where we are waiting for the presumed final shoe to drop. It is too early to pull out the deep offseason topics, but there’s not much left to discuss until Marcus Smart figures out where he’s going to play next year (and for how much).

Steve Bulpett notes that this may drag on for a while:

A source indicated that if nothing gets settled this week, the sides could take a break after Vegas and revisit things later.

So we probably have some time to kill here. To sum up the situation, Smart can either find someone to give him an offer sheet, agree to a new deal with the Celtics, or accept the qualifying offer from the Celtics.

Except that there is one final option he (and the Celtics) could explore. A sign-and-trade. That seems to be the latest rumor to bubble up from the internet.

This seems complicated, but you all seem like smart people (no pun intended - that’s not true, my puns are almost always intended). So work out a reasonable sign-and-trade that benefits all the parties (Celtics, the other team, and Smart). I’m sure all your fellow commenters will totally agree with you and pat you on the back for doing such a good job.

Be nice.
