So what happened to the trade exception that they are talking about? Clearly Orlando had to use it to make salaries match. What happened at the Celtics end? Did the exception just expire and the Celts didn't get it?

I checked the link you posted. The reason why the Celts didn't get a trade exception is the trade for Bass included Von Wafer. The Magic just used their 1.8m trade exception so that they can take in the salaries of Baby and Wafer. In other words, it was a Baby and Wafer for Bass trade, not two separate trades.
Wafer was just given a 3-year 3m deal. Even if the Celts got an exception from that trade, it would just be a 1m exception, equivalent to the vet's minimum.
