Celtics guard Marcus Smart is garnering interest from multiple teams, according to the Boston Globe.
Smart is a restricted free agent whom the Celtics offered a one-year, $6 million qualifying offer. No other team has given Smart an offer yet, though he was seen talking to Nets general manager Sean Marks Monday, according to the Athletic.

Smart has said he wanted a multi-year offer from the Celtics, but he has yet to get it.
The 24-year-old told reporters Monday he has no idea where contract negotiations stand with Boston.
“I have no clue,” he said, via the Boston Globe. “I can only control what I can control.”
According to the Boston Herald, Smart would consider the four-year contract extension the Celtics offered in October. That deal reportedly exceeds the three-year, $33 million deal Jazz guard Dante Exum signed this offseason.
Smart, according to source, would “consider” the four-year extension offer Celtics made last October, which was worth more annually than the three-year, $33 million deal just signed by Dante Exum.
