Celtics Introduce Jason Terry, Chris Wilcox, Jeff Green and Brandon Bass

 

Chris Forsberg and Greg Payne of ESPNBoston.were on hand today in Waltham as the C’s introduced their planned free agent signees thus far in Jason Terry, Chris Wilcox, Jeff Green and Brandon Bass. In what comes as a slight surprise, Bass and Wilcox are the only two players that have been signed to this point in an official capacity by the C’s (in addition to Kevin Garnett who was not present today. Wilcox, reportedly to a veteran’s minimum deal, while Bass will be earning an average of just over seven million over the next three seasons.

Terry and Green remain unsigned as Danny Ainge continues to explore potential sign-and-trade possibilities to the rest of the roster, perhaps for shooting guard Courtney Lee in Houston amongst others. The Celtics have to fit under the $74 million apron in any scenario if they use the full MLE on Terry, so the signings of Green and Terry have likely been put on hold until Ainge has a better idea what the team’s salary for the entire roster will be after a couple more signings, as the team may restructure those deals slightly to accomodate their full payroll.

Additionally, it is worth now that Marc Stein of ESPN.com is now reporting the Mavericks have moved on from a potential sign-and-trade possibility with the C’s for Jason Terry, meaning a potential deal with the Rockets is probably the favorite right now for moves Ainge is working towards (for a package of a pick, JaJuan Johnson, E’Twaun Moore and Sean Williams in all likelihood).

Without further ado, here are a few key quotes from the signed and soon-to-be-signed C’s: (Via ESPNBoston. ) Be sure to read the whole piece over there as well, for plenty of other good nuggets:

Jason Terry on his role: “Well, if they need me to wash the uniforms or sweep the floor, whatever role (coach) Doc (Rivers) wants me to play, I’m here to do it at 100 percent, and give my all,” said Terry. “That’s what I’ve done my whole career, and pretty much whatever it takes to win. Whatever puts us in the best position to win these games and win a championship is what I’ll be doing.”

Jeff Green on his tenure in Green and unfinished business: “I had big hopes last year, prior to the season starting. But unfortunately I had a minor setback,” said Green. “But, yeah, I feel like I have unfinished business. I worked hard to get in the shape I was in and put my game at the level it was at in order to help the team get that extra win to make it to the championship round. I’m looking forward to next year and hopefully I can bring that energy and my skill level to help this team make it to the finals and help them win.”

Brandon Bass on his options: “I had other offers out, but I knew where I wanted to be, and that’s back in the green jersey, playing for the Celtics,” said Bass. “They’re a great organization and it’s a great group of guys who are all about winning. I’m excited to be back.”

Chris Wilcox on being able to return to the NBA: “This is a blessing. This is a blessing for me to even be here right now,” said Wilcox. “I’m just going to take full advantage of all my situations and all the opportunities that’s been coming to my way, and, like I said, it’s a blessing that I’m able to come back to a team to kind of pick up where I left off.”

    I like Jeff saying “to help the team get that extra win.” Sounds like he knows exactly where his team ended things last year, being right there, and what a difference a little more firepower this year might just make.

    Talk like that from JTerry makes me excited. The chemistry on this team already sounds pretty amazing if you ask me. If Ray is upset about not getting the utmost respect from managment, perhaps it is because he didn't get the utmost respect from his teammates and wasn't the glue and leader that KG is. Guys wouldn't be saying those types of things now that Ray is gone if he were of KG's caliber. With or without Ray, Bass and Wilcox think it is a pretty special place to be.
