According to Yahoo! Sports, the Celtics began the process of pursuing free agent guard Jason Terry just after midnight, positioning themselves to replace Ray Allen if the 37-year-old decides to sign elsewhere.
The report states that the Mavericks, for whom the 34-year-old Terry has played with since 2004, still have interest in bringing him back, with the Clippers also showing interest. Terry averaged 15 points per game for the Mavs in 2011-12.

Back-to-back, 11th-inning singles by Dustin Ackley and Miguel Olivo against Red Sox closer Alfredo Aceves set up the Figgins' sacrifice fly. Aceves would go 2 1/3 innings in relief, allowing just the two hits.
For most of the night, the Red Sox' offense could come through went it counted against seven Mariners pitchers, going 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position while stranding 10 runners. Adrian Gonzalez managed three singles, while Cody Ross came away with a pair of hits for the only two multiple-hit performance by Sox hitters.
The Sox had tied the game with two runs in the seventh inning, scoring via a fielder's choice ground out to second base by Ryan Kalish (plating Gonzalez) and Miguel Olivo's passed ball, which allowed Will Middlebrooks to score....
According to the Memphis Commericial-Appeal, the Memphis Grizzlies are planning on making free agent Ray Allen their prime free agent target planning to contact the guard when the free agent negotiating period begins at 12:01 a.m. Sunday.
Sources told the newspaper that the Grizzlies plan on offering Allen its full mid-level exception ($5 million).
According to multiple reports, the Celtics were on the cusp of sending Allen to Memphis during last season's trade deadline in a deal that would have sent O.J. Mayo to Boston but Allen was not open to such a move.
Two other teams that are reportedly interested in bringing in the 37-year-old are Miami and Phoenix.

Darnell McDonald has been designated for assignment by the Red Sox in order to make room on the 25-man roster for Saturday night's starting pitcher, Josh Beckett.
Saturday afternoon McDonald (@MacDime54) tweeted: "Dream come true to play in Boston want to wish my boys good luck the rest of the year! Much love to RSN! #ShowGoesOn"
McDonald is hitting .214 with a .678 and two home runs in 38 games with the Red Sox this season. The 33-year-old has been in the Sox' organization since the beginning of 2010. The outfielder came close to being designated for assignment in '10, actually being told by the organization that he was going to be DFA'd. But the Red Sox never filed the paperwork, allowing McDonald to remain with the Red Sox when Jacoby Ellsbury hurt his ribs during batting practice.
Beckett had been on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

Kevin Garnett has informed the Celtics that he will be returning for next year and possibly more, according to a report in the Boston Herald. Yahoo's Marc Spears reported that Garnett will sign on for three more years for $34 million.
Garnett's return had been widely anticipated after a season in which he played in 60 of their 66 games and averaged 16 points and 8.2 rebounds. Garnett was even better in the playoffs, averaging better than 19 points and 10 rebounds while playing 36 minutes a night for a team that made it all the way to Game 7 of the conference finals. The Celtics moved Garnett to center halfway through the season and that, along with the insertion of Avery Bradley into the starting lineup, propelled them to an unexpected run through the playoffs.
With Garnett on board, team president Danny Ainge can fill out the rest of the roster...
