Marcus Smart and his camp are still waiting to hear from the Boston Celtics in free agency.
Smart is frustrated by how the Celtics haven't reached out to him.
“He loves the Celtics, but with these crickets he’s hearing, he’s hurt and disgusted by it,” said the source.
The market for restricted free agents like Smart has been soft.
“I don’t think that bothers Marcus as much as no communication from Danny (Ainge),” said the source.
Danny Ainge declined comment on Thursday.
Boston's only tangible bid remains their $6.05 million qualifying offer.
“He would have thought there would have been some kind of three- to four-year deal from them to show they’re interested,” said the source. “But the qualifying offer is the only one he has received, and there’s been no talk since free agency opened. He’s most disappointed that there has been no reaching out from their end.
“He’s just hurt and frustrated that Danny hasn’t reached out. That’s the most discouraging part of this whole thing. The last contact was a few days before free agency started.”
