    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.

     

    Koufos?  Only young talent (???) that fits under the apron...

    Terrible trade if they "include a draft pick". If not, then it does shed Lee's contract but I sure hope that a pick is not included just to save two years and 10 million.

    The pick would incude another player to match up to the salary difference ... Koufos works salary wise but what lind of pick would we give for him ... a second?

    Memphis has a $7.5 million trade exception that was created from the Rudy Gay trade so they can absorb Lee's salary without requesting a draft pick.

    In this trade for Jerryd Bayless, Celts get a player they've pursued in previous seasons AND move some $2 million away from luxury-tax line

    And Memphis is indeed said to be willing to take on the additional longterm salary left on Lee's contract in hopes that Lee could bring much-needed perimeter shooting to the Memphis offense. The Grizzlies are essentially relying on Mike Conley and Mike Miller for their 3-point threat in the wake of losing Quincy Pondexter for the season to a foot injury.

    When you look at how Bayless killed us in the 4th quarter this year, it's a great trade for the Celtics - and this is his final year of his contract.

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

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