The Celtics continue to position themselves for a run at Jason Terry, though they will likely sign their own free agents first.

The former Mavericks shooter — the 2009 NBA Sixth Man of the Year — reportedly is open to signing for the full mid-level exception, or approximately $5 million in the first year. The Celtics, who expect to be over the salary cap, which will be set at about $56 million, would qualify.

Terry, who earned more than $11 million last year, has not ruled out playing for the full mid-level, according to a league source.

But for now, anyway, the Celtics are not in the hunt for free agent O.J. Mayo, who has informed teams he's not interested in a mid-level deal, according to the source.
