Marcus Smart is a combo guard on the Memphis Grizzlies and the newest weapon to be excited about on one of the league's up-and-coming teams. The guard is also a newly married man, so let's learn a bit more about Marcus Smart's wife Maisa Hallum and how these two came together.

It has certainly been a busy offseason for Smart and his wife. Smart had spent his entire career with the Boston Celtics, but on June 22, 2023, he was traded in a package that landed the Celtics Kristaps Porzingis. Smart is one of the best defensive players in the NBA and is set to replace Dillon Brooks as the Grizzlies' new pesky defensive guru. The former first-round pick won Defensive Player of the Year in 2022, becoming only the second point guard to ever win the award and the first guard to win it since Gary Payton in 1996.

Defensive Player of the Year is just one of many of Smart's accolades. He is also a three-time All-Defensive First-Team selection, a member of the 2015 All-Rookie Second Team, and a three-time recipient of the NBA Hustle Award. The guard has averages of 10.6 points, 4.6 assists, and 1.5 steals in his career. Smart set a career high in assists per game in 2022 with 6.3. His improved playmaking will be a necessity with new backcourt mate Ja Morant's incoming 25-game suspension.

Smart has played in nine seasons and is a gritty player with a number of accomplishments that any team would want on their squad, but his biggest accomplishment just happened off the court. On Saturday, Sept. 16, Smart married Maisa Hallum. In this article, we will take a closer look at Marcus Smart's wife.

Smart and Hallum officially tied the knot on Sept. 16, 2023. Numerous Celtics players and staff members were in attendance.
