Shira reports what Gabe told us last night:
Celtics executive director of basketball operations Danny Ainge confirmed last night that the team has agreed in principle to a sign-and-trade deal with New Orleans that would land point guard Dan Dickau in Boston with a three-year contract worth an average of $2.5 million per year.
"Ainge said some details of the deal still must be negotiated, including what the Celtics will give to the Hornets. New Orleans will receive a trade exception in the process."
Update: Russillo is saying that New Orleans doesn't seem to want any of the players we are offering, and will likely take a 2nd rounder and an exception.
