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.

Winning record aside, the Pacers are hurting at the gate- just one sellout this season. That’s unacceptable in a hoops INSANE place like Indiana.
