Celtics to waive Demetrius Jackson, avoid paying his $650,000 guarantee. His initial indication is he'll likely not play in SL game tonight.
So, would it mean there was nothing guaranteed? Or what is the unexpected? What I thought is that he had that money guaranteed and for salary cap reasons this could even be stretched.EDIT: A recent report says Ojeleye will be signed in a Mickey/Nader contract type.
If Demetrius Jackson is not claimed on waivers, the Celtics will likely stretch his $650k guarantee over three years, source says.
Is Danny being a cheapazz or does he have no choice really?Jackson is not great but is a decent depth player .... . SL celts have looked better when Jackson has played regardless of his productionIf Ainge needs the money to lock up Semi , finebut if he could have kept both...then why cut Jackson.
So at this point, we should start assuming Semi is about to get a 4 year deal based on the above.
So after Jackson's release, that leaves 3 ball handlers on the roster: IT, Rozier, Smart.Kind of thin, no? Especially, with IT's hip still questionable. Unless this is a sign IT is on his way to being 100% healthy.
