Jason Terry will help Celtics as they press on with risky yet logical strategy

July 4, 2012

Boston may not end up having to pick between guards Ray Allen and Jason Terry for a key bench role. But if it does come down to that, the Celtics have made a better choice in agreeing with Terry on a three-year deal worth more than $15 million, as Yahoo! Sports first reported on Tuesday.

Assuming the Celtics finalize a contract with Terry that calls for a starting salary of the $5 million mid-level exception, they will have about $49 million committed to eight players for next season, including their two first-round picks from last week’s draft. That means they still might have enough space to sign four veterans — including Allen and two of their other free agents, forwards forwards Jeff Green and Brandon Bass — while staying under the $74 million payroll mark that now stands as a hard cap. The math will be tight, but if they can bring back those three for about $20 million total and sign two veterans to minimum-level deals — presumably a wing and a big man — the Celtics should come in below $74 million.
