Source: Celtics Only Want Short Contracts
According to one league source, short contracts are paramount right now to the Celtics, who are looking for salary cap flexibility the next two summers, with Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen both entering the last years of their deals.
“The issue all along for them has been the number of years, not the money,” the source said. “They look at that team they have now as being a one-year, and maximum a two-year project. Letting Baby (Glen Davis) go was more indicative of where the franchise feels it’s going. They just feel that they don’t want to do long-term deals. That approach is going to give them a lot of long-term flexibility.”
