Kings reportedly preparing offer sheet for Marcus Smart

Marcus Smart

Marcus Smart is likely to take the $6.1 million qualifying offer to re-sign with the Boston Celtics. The Celtics reportedly were willing to pay in the $12 million a year range to Smart (he believed he deserved more), so the Kings need to go far enough above that number so the Celtics don't match. He can: 1. Sign the qualifying offer; 2.

Reports earlier this month suggested he would explore his options while former Team USA team-mate Jimmy Butler is said to have expressed an interest in playing alongside Irving once again. In June, Yahoo's Jordan Schultz reported the Dallas Mavericks, Chicago Bulls, Phoenix Suns, and Indiana Pacers were also contenders.

Hawaii bans certain types of sunscreen
This law makes Hawaii the first USA state to enact legislation created to protect marine ecosystems by banning such sunscreens. Alternative reef-safe sunscreens are products with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, that efficiently block the sun's rays.

This comes after the Bulls announced Sunday they matched the four-year, $78 million contract offer sheet the Kings gave to LaVine this offseason. A source close to Smart told the Globe on Friday that Smart was hurt by the Celtics' lack of communication with him during this process. The burly point guard entered the offseason hoping he could find teams willing to pay him way over that range, but that has seemingly proven to be a more hard task than expected, especially with several teams not having enough financial flexibility to make any significant signings.

Said Celtics coach Brad Stevens yesterday: "I saw him a couple days before free agency". I saw him over at the new practice facility. I'm not involved in all the negotiation part of it and all the numbers part of it, and he knows that.
