Boston Celtics: Depth can become the biggest strength

Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum have shone playing extended minutes

Therefore, the tenacious defensive specialist will know he has to keep his options open if he isn't able to stay in Boston, which is his number one choice.

BOSTON - Marcus Smart walked out of the TD Garden, perhaps for the final time, lamenting squandered opportunities and wondering aloud whether he has played his last game as a Boston Celtic. In fact, the postseason was yet another chucking kind of stretch for the 6-foot-4 Smart, as he ended the playoffs with a 33.6 percent mark from the field (and Celtic-low 22.1 percent from behind the arc) in 15 games. On Boston.com, I wrote about four possible ways his restricted free agency pans out.

"To be honest, I'm worth more than 12-14 million, just for the things I do on the court that don't show up on the stat sheet". "I want to be here, I love the city, I love this team".

"I'm on fire about this team", Grousbeck told Bulpett. I always leave everything on the court, every game.

Argentina hoping it's Messi's year at World Cup
Messi moved to Barcelona at the age of 13 and would have been eligible to play for Spain. It's important to start off with a win to build confidence.

"They're already planning for me to be here [next season]", the guard said Monday, per A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston.

Meanwhile, the Celtics will have to figure out how to fit Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward back in a rotation that also includes Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier.

Irving and the Celtics will be back in 2018-19.

Check it out and let me know what you think. Given the lack of teams with the resources and desire to add a player with Smart's skill set, it seems unlikely he'd get the sort of offer that would make it prohibitive for the Celtics to bring him back.

First identified among pig farmers in Malaysia , the disease also surfaced in Siliguri, West Bengal, in 2001 and again in 2007. The Foreign Office has alerted travellers that "there have been official reports of a Nipah Virus outbreak in Kerala ".

"I want him here all the time", Jackson said about Irving.

The Celtics will now take a short break before the offseason begins at the start of July when teams can make trades or hold talks with free agents. "I had a lot of fun leading these guys this year when I had to step up, next year it will play itself out the right way".

The Celtics can make a qualifying offer of almost $6.1 million to Smart and can match any free-agent offer that is made by another team, but it's unlikely they will do so if the numbers climb too high.
