Re: Celtics CANNOT use MLE

In response to Mployee8's comment:
The C's team salary after Pierce's contract kicked in became $73MM including TWill ($948K) but the new Tax Apron is $71.7MM so they are a tax paying team ($1MM owed) and lose the Non-Taxpaying MLE ($5.15MM) but do get the Tax-Payer MLE of $3.2MM ... But with all the trade possibilities they are unlikely to use this unless they end up with a roster spot and can find a decent backup for that kind of $.
