White is averaging 14.4 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 5.6 assists while shooting 42.6% from the field and 31.4% from three-point range. The 6-foot-4 guard will be under contract through the 2024-25 campaign, making $15.1 million this season and it increases every year -- ending at around $19 million in 2025.
The Celtics are trading PJ Dozier and Bol Bol, a future second and cash to the Magic for a future second-round pick, sources tell ESPN. Dozier and Bol are both out for the season. Cost-savings for Boston.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) February 10, 2022
The move sends out around $4 million in salary to Orlando when the Celtics were about $800,000 above the tax line prior to the Richardson and Langford trade. This also leaves some flexibility in case Jaylen Brown still gets his $1.9 million All-Star bonus if he's chosen to replacement an injured player.
