• Sources: Celts looking to get Griz's Bayless

    Summary of 4 articles · Updated Jan 5, 2014
    Sources told ESPN.com that the Celtics, after pursuing him in previous seasons as well, are on the verge of acquiring Bayless for shooting guard Courtney Lee. So they've spent the weekend trying to complete this swap for Bayless, whose production is down under new Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger while making $3.1 million in the final year of his contract. The Grizzlies pulled off another move Sunday, waiving guard Seth Curry, brother of Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry, according to sources with knowledge of the move. The swap of back-up guards accomplishes two goals for Boston: it clears off the future money owed to Lee, who was brought on to fortify the since-dismantled Paul Pierce/Kevin Garnett/Rajon Rondo core, and it adds a ball-handler to a roster that has lacked in that capacity during Rondo’s rehabilitation from a serious knee injury.
