WEEI had Wyc Grousbeck on the air and he dropped this bomb.
According to Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck, they will have the financial flexibility to offer someone a full max contract next summer. Speaking with "Dale & Holley" Monday, Grousbeck did not give specifics, but he reiterated this fact by saying "there is a situation under which we could do that."
