"The Celtics appeared to be bidding against themselves as they renewed serious negotiations and agreed to a four-year, $52 million deal with Marcus Smart Thursday.

But they were willing to pass on a potentially bargain year of Smart at the qualifying offer of $6,053,719 to lock him up for multiple years and avoid a far more uncertain dance next summer when he could be an unrestricted free agent."

Also gives them a 12 million contract slot if any other trade gets down the road...AD (Unlikely); Giannis (Wouldn't be a shock), Devin Booker (I think he averages 60 points a game at the TD Garden. He could be like the basketball version of JD Martinez at Fenway). Also shows a little goodwill towards a player after they traded Isaiah last summer while he was hurt, which rubbed some players (and potential future free agent targets) the wrong way.
