Celtics guard Marcus Smart said Monday that his heart is in Boston and that he believes the team is planning for his return next season, even as he prepares for the uncertainty of restricted free agency this summer.

Only hours after Boston’s Game 7 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals, Smart went through exit interviews and said team brass talked as if he would be back next season. “I got a lot to think about. There’s a lot of factors that go into it. But that being said, I want to be in Boston. I want to be here,” Smart said.

Kyrie Irving is going to get paid. He’s going to get a max contract from someone, and the Celtics would still like to be the team that signs those checks. Let’s put that right up front.

But, man, is it getting strange out here on the Kyrie beat.

The most interesting bit of information from several sources that we’ve been able to consolidate and confirm is that some teams thought to have interest in Irving as a free agent are now a great deal more wary. Based on the way things played out with the Celtics this season and Irving’s role both off the court all year and on it in the playoff loss to Milwaukee, certain clubs are concerned about putting too many eggs in his basket right away.
