Quantcast


The Boston Celtics have until midnight tonight to waive Phil Pressey's unguaranteed contract. According to the Boston Herald's Steve Bulpett, Pressey currently has nothing to worry about, and should have a spot on Boston's roster (as the Celtics currently don't seem to have any trades in the works):


If Bulpett's report is accurate, that will leave the Celtics with 3 players with unguaranteed contracts (Keith Bogans, Chris Johnson, and Chris Babb). Two of them will likely be waived or traded before the start of the season to trim the Celtics' roster to 15, unless players with guaranteed contracts get moved.

Current Celtics' roster with salaries (from Mike Dyer):

Rajon Rondo - $12,909,091
Gerald Wallace - $10,105,855
Jeff Green - $9,200,000
Marcus Thornton - $8,575,000
Avery Bradley - approx. $8,000,000
Brandon Bass - $6,900,000
Keith Bogans - $5,285,817 (unguaranteed - team option)
Joel Anthony - $3,800,000
Marcus Smart - $2,736,100
Vitor Faverani - $2,090,000
Kelly Olynyk - $2,075,760
Tyler Zeller - $1,703,760
Jared Sullinger - $1,424,520
James Young - $1,395,400
Chris Johnson - $915,243 (unguaranteed - team option)
Phil Pressey - $816,482 (unguaranteed - team option - likely to be guaranteed at midnight tonight)
Chris Babb - $816,482 (unguaranteed - team option)
