Free agent guard Jason Terry and the Boston Celtics are approaching agreement on a three-year contract, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports. But the Celtics shouldn't count their chickens just yet.
Though the Mavericks like Terry, who was a crucial piece to their 2011 NBA championship run, matching Boston's offer isn't a given. Dallas has spent the past couple seasons maneuvering to open cap space, and re-signing Terry would take away some of their flexibility.
If Terry does end up landing in Boston, it would be a coup for the Celtics, who desperately need scoring. Terry could also relieve some of Rajon Rondo's ball-handling abilities.
