    This trade makes us worse and gives us more money to play with.

    Which is good.

    If only we could get Sebastian Telfair.

    Here ....

    Celtics Nearing Deal For Jerryd Bayless January 5 at 4:29pm CST By Zach Links

    The Celtics are in advanced discussions on a deal to acquire Jerryd Bayless from the Grizzlies, tweets Marc Stein of ESPN.com.  The swap would involve Boston guard Courtney Lee.  Memphis will have to add at least one more player for the salaries to match up, so it seems likely that the deal will expand if it goes down.

    In late December, the Grizzlies reportedly offered Bayless to the Lakers in return for Jodie Meeks.  Memphis came into this season with high hopes, but their 15-18 start apparently has them wanting to make big changes.  Bayless, 25, has averaged 8.0 PPG and 2.0 APG, numbers that are his lowest since his rookie year.

    Lee was a client of Grizzlies CEO Jason Levien and front office exec Stu Lash when they were agents.  The guard has already seen his name on Hoops Rumors quite a bit this season as he was linked to a proposed deal that would have sent him and Brandon Bass to Houston for Omer Asik.  Of course, those talks fizzled.   Swapping Bayless for Lee also figures to please Grizzlies exec John Hollinger as Lee boasts a career-best PER of 15.3 this season compared to Bayless’ 11.2, his worst total since 2008/09.

    Lee, who appears headed to the fifth team of his professional career, finds himself stuck behind Avery Bradley in the rotation and only figures to see his role shrink further when Rajon Rondo comes back to action.  While his efficiency rating has been strong, it’s happening off of a career-low 16.8 minutes per game.

    Bayless is in his walk year and is earning just $3.135MM while Lee makes $5.23MM this year, $5.45 next year, and $5.675MM in his final year.  It’s possible that Boston will include a draft pick in the trade if they’re getting another expiring contract or a solid talent along with Bayless in the swap since the Grizzlies are taking on a three-year deal in Lee.  The Grizzlies are close to the luxury tax threshold and the Celtics are even closer, so that should play a factor in the proposed deal.

    Trade exceptions could also be involved in the deal – Boston has a trade exception from the Paul Pierce trade while the Grizzlies have one from the Rudy Gay swap.

     

    The trade doesn't work straight up one for one ... would seem that there is some filler or cash (if allowed) needed to make the salaries match. That may have created speculation of other players involved.

    Note the mention of the trade exceptions by the writer as well. But a TPE cannot be combined with another player for a trade so unless there were multiple trades or a third team involved then the mention of the trade exception is off base and incorrect. That's why you shouldn't believe everything you read by these writers/reporters.



    thanks man...

    As long as we don't give up any first round picks, I'm happy.

    Consider that the price for saving that extra $11MM over the next two seasons ...



    but are we giving more money with the 2nd round pick? should we not be getting back than giving?
