Several Twitter capologists thought it was still possible for Ainge to offer restricted free agent Tobias Harris a max deal, but after Orlando's flirtation with Paul Millsap ended with him re-signing with the Hawks, it looks like the Magic are willing to match any offer out there:
Sources from other teams and within the player rep community say the C's were also in play for Tobias Harris and Corey Brewer, but as of late last night, those pursuits have ended.
The Celts had a certain financial parameter in mind for Harris, and when it became clear that Orlando was willing to pay big to match any offer for the restricted free agent, they were out of the running.
The agreement with Crowder essentially removed the Celts' interest in Brewer.
The Celtics now have 14 players under contract, not counting second round picks Jordan Mickey or Marcus Thornton and non-guaranteed Chris Babb and Phil Pressey. Trades anyone?
