Celtics get Terry
Former Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Terry has reportedly agreed to a three-year deal worth the full mid-level exception with the Celtics, according to multiple news outlets. Terry, however, can not officially sign with the team until July 11 and the Mavericks will get an opportunity to match the deal although that is reportedly unlikely to happen.
Terry is a key pickup for the Celtics as he gives them a sharp shooting guard off the bench who can also create his own shot. At this stage in their respective careers Terry is an upgrade over Ray Allen.
The Celtics, however, say they are still interested in bringing Allen back.
McDonald to Yankees
Former Red Sox outfielder Darnell McDonald was claimed off waivers by the Yankees Wednesday and will join them Friday at Fenway Park against the Red Sox.
McDonald will not make the Yankees any better as he did with the Sox as he brings a .214 batting average, two home runs and nine RBI to the table. McDonald was designated for assignment by the Red Sox last week.
Wild lands a pair
The Minnesota Wild have turned out to be the big winners in this year's free agency period, landing prized free agents Zach Parise and Ryan Suter.
Suter and Parise, a defenseman and forward who played for Nashville and New Jersey in 2012 respectively, are two of the top free agents on the market this offseason.
This is bad news for the Bruins, who fans hoped to see go after Parise. We are still waiting for Boston to make an impact move.
