Marcus Smart being groomed for leadership role with Celtics
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/22/15) Celtics management remains hopeful that rookie point guard Marcus Smart will step forward and assume a leadership role with the team, reports the Boston Herald.
"He's doing a good job of playing well, of handling success and adversity. Those are all precursors to being a leader," coach Brad Stevens said. "When you're a young person you have to earn that kind of respect with your approach. It's not even your play, it's your approach."
The Celtics selected Smart No.6 overall pick in this year's draft. They traded start point guard Rajon Rondo for Jameer Nelson, then traded Nelson to Denver for Nate Robinson. Robinson was bought out by the Celtics, which opened the door again for Smart to emerge as a leader. Smart is averaging 6.7 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game this season. He's also shooting 39.6 percent from the field and 36.5 percent from 3-point territory through 26 games.

Celtics' Marcus Smart is available to play Friday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(12/19/14) Celtics coach Brad Stevens told reporters guard Marcus Smart is available to play Friday against the Timberwolves.
Smart has missed the last two games with an Achilles injury. In 10 games, he is averaging 5.9 points and 2.1 rebounds.
|The Celtics targeted the best-player available with their No. 6 overall pick in this summer's draft, and came away with guard Marcus Smart out of Oklahoma State. It is kind of an awkward fit, given the presence of All-Star Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley, who just received a big extension, but the team is confident they can make it work. Smart was one of the top players in college over two seasons, as he averaged 18.0 points, 5.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists in 31 games as a sophomore in 2013-14. He had a nearly unparalleled ability to fill up the box score, and should be a solid Fantasy bet even in a reserve role for Boston, as he has the size and skill to play either guard spot. Also, the looming possibility of a Rondo trade could vault Smart into a starting role before long. He will be worth a mid-round pick in most Fantasy formats on Draft Day, and could be an early-round option in dynasty/keeper leagues.
