Smart reportedly drawing interest from other teams; is one of them Nets?

Celtics restricted free agent guard Marcus Smart is scheduled to meet with two NBA teams Tuesday after talking to two others on Monday and is seeking a multi-year deal worth less than $15 million per season, according to a Boston Globe report.

One of those teams could be the Brooklyn Nets. Michael Scotto of The Athletic posted a photo of what appears to be Smart and his agent Happy Walters talking with Nets general manager Sean Marks in Las Vegas. 

NBC Sports Boston Celtics Insider A. Sherrod Blakely reported Monday that the Sacramento Kings were considering an offer sheet "expected to be closer to the $12-14 million" a year range for Smart. 

Kings beat writer Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reported that the Kings were not preparing an offer sheet.

Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald also reported Tuesday that Smart would "consider" accepting the Celtics' offer from last October, which would be worth more annually than the three-year, $33 million recently signed by Jazz guard Dante Exum.

The 6-foot-4 guard has reportedly been upset and bothered by the lack of attention being paid to him by the Celtics, who can match any offer made to him. They have made a $6.1 million qualifying offer to Smart.
