Bobby Marks: The likelihood is that the [Boston Celtics] will apply for the disabled player exception, which will be worth up to $8.4 million. The league will have to determine whether Gordon Hayward’s injury will keep him out until June 15–the target date–for it to be granted. I think it’s good to have, I just don’t see how many good options are out there. The rule is, you’re trading for or signing players on a one-year contract. If you look at the [small forwards] under contract, there’s not many great ones out there that can have an immediate impact right now.
