In the last few days, we’ve heard plenty about Marcus Smart and his potential return to the Boston Celtics.

Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald reported “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.”

But that offer isn’t necessarily available, considering colleague Steve Bulpett revealed the following in the aftermath:

“Sources indicate this may drag on for quite a while. Smart determined his worth to be more than what is out there in this summer’s market, and the Celts are in no rush to bid against themselves. It’s unclear now even if the club is willing to revisit their extension offer from last fall reported in the Herald last week (four years at more than $12 million per) whether that would even work for Smart now.”

If that’s not enough, Celtics general manager Danny Ainge told reporters in Las Vegas that re-signing Smart remains a priority. But Yahoo Sports’ Jordan Schultz relayed a dearth of communication between the two, while several teams, including the  cheap nfl jerseys nike Memphis Grizzlies and Brooklyn Nets, have inquired about sign-and-trade possibilities. The conflicting information never ends in a situation that seems destined to twist and turn for a while longer. nike nfl jersey cheap

Still, it’s hard to envision Smart in a different uniform. Boston knows how important he is to the team’s success even without a working jumper (see: relentless hustle, passing, defensive acumen, rebounding and plenty more), and that could help the nfl jerseys nike cheap sides agree to a multiyear deal even while he has no leverage. Ask him to run it back on the qualifying offer, and you risk long-standing animosity that prevents the relationship from lasting beyond 2018-19. nike nfl jerseys for cheap
