Marcus Smart says he was nearly traded for Kyrie Irving

I’m not really surprised to learn that Marcus Smart was involved in the trade talks for Kyrie Irving. It’s more a fascination with the evolution of negotiations surrounding at deal – hich players were involved early but didn’t make the final cut.w

We’ve heard a lot about Smart’s off-season weight loss. He says back pain and a lack of energy forced him to drop 20 pounds. He hired a personal chef, dropped fried foods and adopted a Mediterranean diet. What will that mean on the court?

The C’s will need the help on the perimeter especially since Avery Bradley is in Detroit (still hurts). Don’t worry, he still promises to be a bull.
