Report: Boston Celtics interested in free agent Jason Terry

The Boston Celtics are interested in signing free agent Jason Terry, but the team's first priority will be bringing back its own free agents, reports the Boston Herald's Mark Murphy.

The Celtics have already re-signed center Kevin Garnett. The next target for the team is shooting guard Ray Allen, who is reportedly meeting with the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers this week. If the team loses Allen, Terry would be a possible replacement.

Murphy reports that Terry would consider signing for the full mid-level exception of $5 million.

Terry, who helped lead the Dallas Mavericks to the NBA title last season, would provide the shooting and scoring punch the Celtics need. The 34-year-old Terry, the NBA Sixth Man of the Year in 2009, has averaged more than 15 points per game in each of the past seven seasons.

The Celtics are likely out of the running for Memphis Grizzlies guard O.J. Mayo, though, Murphy reports. Mayo wants more than the mid-level exception that the Celtics could offer.
