We posted a few days ago that the holdup on the Jason Terry deal was that Danny was trying to work a sign and trade with Dallas so as to free up the MLE.
At today's press conference, Danny confirmed that the deal wasn't done yet and that confirmed the reports that he's still working to try to give the team a little more flexibility. Gary Washburn posted this update earlier today.
#celtics are apparently trying to find a third team to facilitate a sign-and-trade with the #Mavericks for Jason Terry

ESPN Boston also reported that after using up a chunk of their cap space on Elton Brand, the Mavs are hesitant to take back Dooling or Pavlovic and would need a 3rd team to make the deal work.   The Celtics have limited assets that they can deal but Danny's not giving up easily.  I'm not sure if he will be able to pull it off, but I have to hand it to him for trying every avenue to get it done.  Either way, Jason Terry would be a Celtic, but it sure would be nice if we could get another valuable asset to go with him.  Stay tuned.  I'm sure there's more to come.
