Celtics sign SG-Jason Terry to 3-year, $15.7 million deal
The Celtics starting five played exceptionally well this season but Boston lacked any real scoring pop off their bench. Enter Jason Terry. One of the top bench scorers in the NBA the past few seasons, The Jet will provide that punch especially if Ray Allen ends up signing elsewhere. The C’s still want to bring Allen back but if they are unable to, Terry serves as a solid replacement.
Pacers re-sign PG-George Hill to five year deal, terms undisclosed
Hill came off the bench most of last season for Indiana but took over the starting point guard spot last season and played really well. He was a restricted free agent but the Pacers obviously thought enough of his inaugural season in Indy to ink him to a long-term extension. Finanical terms haven’t been released but you can bet Hill will be making around $7-8 million a year. He is also a valuable commodity for the Pacers because he can play off the ball while allowing Darren Collison to run the point. Another option for Indiana would be trading Darren Collison for another asset.
