Marcus Smart would cost at least the Warriors’ 2020 first-round pick, potentially more given how impactful he’s been for the Boston Celtics this season.
He’s one of the best players in the league when it comes to just disrupting the flow of the opponent, especially on the defensive end.
Much like Draymond Green, Smart brings passion and energy to the court on a nightly basis. Improving his shooting, Smart helped strengthen his trade value this season, arguably his best in the league. Averaging a career-high 13.5 points per game, Smart shot just 38% from the field.
His numbers in many ways still leave quite a bit to be deserved. Notching 2.4 threes per game this season, Smart has improved his shooting and made the most of the opportunity to take more leadership.
Helping surprise the East with the Celtics play, Smart is one of the most underrated defenders in the league and would fit extremely well on the Warriors. A Smart-Curry-Thompson-Green-Wiggins lineup would be small, but it’d be versatile on both sides of the court.
