Shams Charania: Sources: Former Celtics draft pick Jordan Mickey is finalizing a guaranteed $1.5M minimum deal with the Miami Heat, with ’18-19 team option.
The Boston Celtics announced early Friday morning they have waived big man Jordan Mickey before his contract would have become guaranteed. The move was expected as the Celtics continue to clear cap space for Gordon Hayward’s maximum contract. By letting Mickey go before July 15, the team saved $1.47 million.
Boston would now need a series of transactions to create cap space for Gordon Hayward. The Celtics would have to pull the qualifying offer on Kelly Olynyk, renounce free agents Jonas Jerebko, James Young, Gerald Green and waive the contracts of Jordan Mickey and Demetrius Jackson (or trade).
