Boston's payroll is up there, but they will now become eligible for an disabled player exemption salary slot for Rondo.  As I understand it, the exemption is worth half the player's salary or the MLE that year, whichever is less, and it can be used on multiple players. 

There's not a lot out there in FA PGs (Fisher, Boykins, Bibby), but they could bring in a combo guard like Delonte West. 

Along with signing someone like Delonte, they could get creative and get a jump start on the rest of the league and sign Greg Oden for this year and next.  It would be ironic to sign an injured player with the disabled player exemption.

Maybe they use it to sign another guy with knee history , Greg Oden. Oops missed you mention that in the OP.

They can now outbid Miami and other contenders for his services if they do indeed use it ....

Unfortunately, I think the Celtics can't apply for such an exception without exceeding the luxury tax "apron" threshold. Doing so would complicate the Jason Terry signing: the Celtics used an exception available only to non-tax-paying teams to sign him.

Again, this exception is only available to teams that are below the "apron," i.e., below the point $4 million above the tax line. Teams above the apron instead must use the smaller Taxpayer Mid-Level exception (see below). Further, any team that uses its Non-Taxpayer Mid-Level exception cannot go above the apron for the remainder of that season. In other words, once a team uses its Non-Taxpayer Mid-Level exception, the apron effectively becomes a hard cap for the remainder of that season4. This eliminates any potential loophole where a team could first use its full Non-Taxpayer Mid-Level exception and subsequently add salary to go above the apron, since adding salary first and then using the exception would be illegal.

It should be against the rules to use an injured player exception to sign an injured player, but heck, there have been stranger rules in the NBA. I'd sign Oden.

The whole idea of the exemption is to allow a team to go over the threshold.  I don't know if their Terry signing makes them ineligible for the Disabled Player Exemption.  I'd be surprised if it did.

Actually, according to Larry Coon, teams cannot apply for a disabled player exception after January 15.
