It's been only a few days since Marcus Smart has been on the trading block and teams are already making calls to the Celtics for the guard. 

It seems unlikely Danny Ainge would pull the trigger for an Emmanuel Mudiay Marcus Smart swap, but if the C's can squeeze a first-round pick out of the Nuggets, that could push Ainge to go for it.

Mudiay is under contract for another year at just under $4.3 million compared to Smart, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, commanding upwards of $8 million. That, coupled with a possible late lottery draft pick may be too enticing for the Celtics to pass up.
