The 24-year-old guard averaged 10.2 points, 4.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.3 steals for the Celtics in 54 games last season. He was a key spark off the Celtics' bench who finished many games with the starting unit because of his elite-level defense.
Smart was drafted by the Celtics with the No. 6 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.
