    I thought Melo was with Dallas???

    Anyway, another great move by Danny.  BTW, who are the free agents coming available?  If we are shedding slary as well, are we angling for a free agent?

    If Bayless can play and keep his trap shut about playing time do it!

    [/QUOTE]

    Yes but NO PICKS INCLUDED. Maybe a 2nd rounder but NO FIRST ROUNDERS just to save 2 years/10 Million.

    [/QUOTE]

    OK, Thanks Mel and I can now come off the Bridge.

    [/QUOTE]

    HOW A COURTNEY LEE FOR JERRYD BAYLESS TRADE AFFECTS DANNY AINGE’S CELTICS FUTURE 01.05.14 at 7:10 pm ET By  Ben Rohrbach         Courtney Lee

    Courtney Lee

    The Celtics and Grizzlies have reached an agreement to swap guardsCourtney Lee and Jerryd Bayless pending approval from the league on Monday, according to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein.

    As a result of the deal, the Celtics save $2.1 million this season and shed the $11.1 million owed Lee over the next two seasons, since Bayless is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

    Of course, the C’s also acquire a 25-year-old point guard who has averaged highs of 11.4 points (52.2 true shooting percentage), 4.0 assists and 2.5 rebounds with a 13.5 Player Efficiency Rating for five teams in his six NBA seasons. Bayless averaged 8.0 points (46.8 TS%), 2.0 assists and 1.9 boards while producing an 11.2 PER in 20.8 minutes over 30 games for the Grizzliesthis season. He has totaled 57 points in his last three games against the Celtics.

    The trade effectively ends a disappointing Boston tenure for Lee. While the 28-year-old has scored 7.4 points on 57.3 true shooting (49.2 FG%, 44.2 3P%) in 30 games for the Celtics this season, he never quite lived up to the four-year, $21.5 million deal he signed in 2012.

    Most importantly, the Celtics cut their guaranteed payroll to just $42.5 million next season — well below the projected salary cap of $62.1 million — offering Celtics president Danny Ainge even more flexibility to re-signAvery Bradley, acquire anyone on the free-agent market and/or make any trade under the sun.

    It is a salary dump. Lee never lived up to his contract. Now he's gone.

    Bayless is a point guard.

    So he backs up Rondo, and Crawford moves back to the two?

    Good trade. Precursor move possibly.

    LOVE THIS TRADE

    Bayless has stood out in the playoffs for Memphis the last 2 seasons , tough player and a better fit for the Celtics roster.

    Great move. Celtics get to audition Bayless for rest of season and gives them a solid guy to compare against Avery Bradley.

    WIN WIN trade for both teams. 

    Memphis is a Western Conference powerhouse that always gets overlooked until the playoffs start.....then they show how tough they really are.

    Great spot for Courtney Lee to land, one less unhappy vet in the locker room. 

    Celtics finally have a legit backup for Rondo......

    Danny Ainge quietly continues to build a tough, defensive powerhouse of a team. Bayless and Bradley can hang and bang with any backcourt in the NBA

    Very nice move !

    "It is a salary dump. Lee never lived up to his contract. Now he's gone."

    That sums it up. Bayless is a nice player but he's a free agent this summer. If he plays well I guess he could get re-signed. I like this deal. But it's going to be harder to dump Wallace now if he can't be packaged with Lee :)

    If it is just Lee for Bayless straight up, then this is a great trade for the Celtics.  Salary dump.  Pure and simple.
