The Boston Celtics are still hoping to re-sign Marcus Smart. The 24-year-old guard is a restricted free agent and the Celtics are waiting to see what offers he receives, general manager Danny Ainge told the Boston Herald. 

But, Ainge said he wants Smart to return to Boston. The Celtics can match any contract Smart signs with a different team.
