The Celtics roster currently stands at 17, so there doesn’t appear to be room for Bayless, or for Kris Humphries, who was sent to the Wizards Tuesday. The Celtics acquired Bayless last season in the deal that sent Courtney Lee to Memphis. Bayless averaged 10.1 points and 3.1 assists. He made 39 percent of his 3-pointers.
