Done with Deals?

July 24, 2005
With the Brian Scalabrine signing and Ryan Gomes's pending agreement, the Celtics are down to around $2 million-$2.2 million in their midlevel exception. And their payroll (minus Antoine Walker and Gary Payton ) is now around $50 million, which represents a very safe figure for ownership. Is there anyone out there in free agency who might be lured by the remaining $2.2 million who is better than what they now have? Doubtful. You might be able to get Brevin Knight or someone of that ilk for that figure and Knight might be open to leaving Charlotte, where he has been told that he will be a mentor for Ray Felton if he decides to come back. But unless there's some financial wizardry involved, a more experienced point guard along the lines of Earl Watson , Marko Jaric , or even Jeff McInnis is not going to be tempted by that amount.
