I’ve been able to learn a lot about the new salary cap structure recently. I’ve picked up a few of the nuances, but not all of them. Sometimes in the pursuit of being creative within the system, I overlook a simple solution to a problem that can dramatically change the Celtics’ offseason. This is one such solution: A sign-and-trade for Jason Terry.
In regard to outgoing players, Jason Terry still hasn’t signed with Boston, but that deal has been agreed upon. Apparently, the only holdup is whether the Mavericks can figure out a way to sign-and-trade Terry rather than simply losing him in free agency for nothing.
It might be a way to get Terry a few more dollars, and it might net the Mavericks a second-round draft pick or something like that for the future.
A second round pick, you say? Well, the Celtics were just handed a second round pick from Oklahoma City via Charlotte. That’s an asset they didn’t have before, and they could easily give it to Dallas in an unbalanced trade...
