OJ Mayo to Dallas…Could C’s Be Involved In Deal Via Trade?

O.J. Mayo broke the news of his own signing earlier tonight on his Twitter account, declaring he was headed to Dallas. The signing eliminated the pipe dream of Mayo coming to Boston, knowing his services would be far too costly for Boston’s resources. The thing I am wondering about however is if the C’s could somehow be involved in this deal in a three-team or four-team capacity, involving Jason Terry.

The┬áMavs only have $4 million dollars of cap room at the moment, meaning Mayo is signing below market value or the Mavs are likely going to have to make subsequent moves to obtain Mayo, or are doing so via a sign-and-trade. Could it be a 3-way deal with Mavs sending Terry to Boston, C’s sending filler (JaJuan Johnson, E’Twaun Moore, Sean Williams and a pick to Memphis and Mayo to Dallas?). I have to think some deal like that might be in play here down the road, if Boston can get creative enough and Memphis wants something back for Mayo. No report yet though on any terms or a sign-and-trade, so we will have to wait for more information before getting ahead of ourselves here, but you have to think something more is involved with the signing, whether or not it involves the Celtics directly.

    WoW… a four team trade that doesn't involve Dwight Howard? If it's true, I love it.

    I should say three team. Jumping the gun a little bit and including a city that will remain nameless but starts with an H and ends with a -ouston. C'mon, Danny! You're youngsters are in Vegas right now and the overall situation is getting very high stakes.

    Your youngsters are impressing as well. Don't let the summer sour now.

    Why don't we do a trade for Delonte West??? Dallas can sign him for maybe 2 mil for 2 years and trade him unfortunately for JaJuan Johnson, which they can flip to Memphis.

    2nd Unit would be:

    Delonte
    Terry
    Green
    Bass (considering KG starts at PF and C's bring in low cost starting C with remaining salary flexibility)
    Wilcox

      I think the 2nd unit's going to be good no matter who we get to fill that sg spot.
