As the Brooklyn Nets wrap up their monster moves, other squads are stacking up their team that could shift NBA futures.
Rumors from the mothership persist that free agent guard Jason Terry, formerly of the Dallas Mavericks, is close to signing with the Boston Celics, giving them a high-energy back up to Boston’s best player Rajon Rondo.
Terry is closing in on a three-year contract with Boston sources close to the situation confirmed Tuesday. Terry’s offer from the Celtics is believed to be for the full mid-level exception of $5 million annually and the cash-strapped Mavs don’t plan to match the offer. That appears to have gotten the Mavericks in the market for a new point guard, as rumors persist that their priorities are now shifting to 39-year-old and former Mav Steve Nash and one-time Mavs Summer League hand Jeremy Lin, according to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein.
The Los Angeles Lakers have also taken an interest in Nash, according to an NBA.com report.
Jason Kidd, former Maverick who is now a free agent has narrowed down his choices to the Mavs or New York Knicks, the latter of which may need a guard if they lose Lin.
Dallas is also undecided regarding Houston Rockets free agent Goran Dragic, who visited the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday and could command a starting salary of $10 million, according to sources.
Obviously, any of these big moves go down we could see an instant shift in NBA futures.
