Report: Teams calling Celtics to see if Terry is available

Now with Jared Sullinger joining Rajon Rondo on the “done for the season” list, the vultures are circling. Other GMs are looking at the Celtics and want to try and pick the carcass clean.

We’ve talked about teams inquiring about Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, but then Ken Berger of CBSSports.com dropped this nugget on twitter:

Jason Terry just signed with Boston this summer but at a reasonable mid-level exception deal — he has two-years at $10.4 million total left the two seasons after this.

Terry has struggled to find a comfort level in Boston, both in terms of his role and just his general play on the court — he is averaging 10 points a game (down from 15 last season) and has a PER of 11.9, the lowest of his career.

But GM Danny Ainge isn’t just giving him away to the fifth caller like a pair of Killers tickets. Ainge will listen to anything, but he wants some value back in return. And right now with the vultures circling, the offers the Celtics are getting are lowball ones.
