Brandon Bass' new contract with the Boston Celtics is expected to be for three years and around $20 million, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England. Bass' agent, Tony Dutt, told Blakely that a deal was being finalized, though he did not confirm the contract details.
Assuming Bass is indeed making that kind of money on his new contract, he will earn an annual salary similar to that of Glen Davis, the man he was traded for back before the 2011-12 season. Davis signed a four-year, $26 million deal with the Magic.
Bass averaged 12.5 points and 6.2 rebounds per game for the Celtics last season, emerging late in the year as a great fit as a floor spacer in their pass-heavy offense.
