In response to BrandBreaker8's comment:
C's got a $4MM TPE and a 2015 2nd rd pick (31-49 protected). Ainge could have easily signed Hump with the MLE as DC did but opted to acquire non-player assets since no Love deal has happened.
But as Rame has said, you were wrong about Hump, Rondo, using the TPE, Turner, getting a top three pick in the lottery and Lord knows how many other lame predictions not to mention other posters ideas that you wrote off as idiotic yet Hawes is a Clipper, Turner a Celtic and Morrow a Thunder. Pretty astute managements when it comes to talent evaluation but we should listen to you?
There was no need for the Celts to sign Hump using their own MLE because the Celts didn't renounce Hump.
Celts still owned Hump's Bird rights.
That means the Celts could have signed Hump for more than the 5.3m MLE.
Also, the 2nd pick the Celts got is protected from picks 31-55.
That means the Celts can only own the pick if the Wiz finish with a top 5 record in the whole NBA next season.
The 4.3m TPE is only means something if you get something.
If that 4.3m TPE expires then the Celts get nothing.
The C's obviously didn't need to use more than what DC gave to Hump. What was it, $4MM?
You said Ainge wouldn't use the $10.3MM TPE and were proven wrong on that one too.
Hey, you aren't doing so well !!!
And as usual you are wrong on the pick too.

The Washington Wizards sent a 2015 second-rounder to Boston for Kris Humphries - top-49 protected - so range of 50-60 it goes to Celts
You must have tons of "I Was Wrong" threads each year ... LOL!!!
[So far you have been wrong about Hump, Rondo, using the TPE, Turner, getting a top three pick in the lottery, staying under the cap (LOL!!!) and forfeiting use of the MLE/BAE]
