HoopsHype Jerryd Bayless rumors

January 8, 2014 Updates

Bayless now joins Jordan Crawford and Avery Bradley as combo guards whose playmaking time will decrease once Rajon Rondo returns to the lineup. He only hopes he does enough to stay, though he will be a free agent next summer. In that respect he’s not surprised with the move. “It’s my contract year and situations like this happen,” said Bayless. “It’s not disappointing, but it’s part of this business. You have to get acclimated with how this team does things, and I will. I’ve been traded a couple of times before, so it’s nothing new to me. It’s difficult, but once the initial shock wears off, you move on with it. Boston Herald

The Celtics reached an agreement to send Courtney Lee to Memphis in exchange for Grizzlies guard Jerryd Bayless, a league source confirmed to the Globe Sunday. The deal will give the Celtics a young, athletic perimeter player who has torched them in the past while, more importantly, giving the team more financial flexibility, which the organization covets in its new era of rebuilding.
