Could Marcus Smart end up in Dallas?

According to a report from, the Mavs are considering a run at the Dallas native in free agency, but only at the right price. From Mike Fisher's report:

An NBA source tells that depending on Smart's asking price, the Mavs can be expected to explore pursuing the 6-4 guard, a defense-first battler who scores 10 points per game for a Celtics team that made it to the Eastern Conference Finals. 

Smart is already on record that he believes he's worth more than $12-$14 million a year, as he told ESPN after the Game 7 loss to the Cavaliers. But with money tight this summer across the league, he could be looking at offers in the $8-$10 million range.

Smart was raised in Flower Rock, Texas, 25 miles north of Dallas.

He has also been linked to the Kings, Pacers, and Nuggets, according to Yahoo's Chris Mannix.
