BOSTON (AP) _ The Boston Celtics have signed free agent guard
Jason Terry.

The deal was reported earlier this month during a signing
moratorium, then held up while the Celtics tried to work out a
sign-and-trade agreement with the Dallas Mavericks.

Instead, Boston will use its mid-level exemption to sign the
2009 NBA Sixth Man of the Year.

The 6-foot-2 guard averaged 15.1 points per game for the
Mavericks last year. He was second in the league with 138 made
3-pointers last season and is fourth in NBA history on the career
list with 1,788.

Terry is seen as a replacement for Ray Allen, who signed as a
free agent with the Miami Heat.
