Celtics Debating Shavlik Randolph’s Option?
With so many moving parts and the need to begin the regular season with a payroll at least $2 million below where it is now, (Danny) Ainge is attempting to time every signing and deletion from his roster. Next up is a decision on whether to pick up a $1.1 million option on Shavlik Randolph’s contract by Aug. 1.
Management would clearly prefer to bring back the center, who may be one of the best rebounders on the roster. But there is an outside chance that the team will have to pass up on Randolph’s fairly minimal contract, if it means getting under the $72.7 million luxury tax threshold.
