Jason Terry, who spent the past eight seasons with the Dallas Mavericks, has accepted a three-year, $15 million offer sheet from the Boston Celtics, according to multiple media reports.

Terry, 34, is a graduate of Franklin High School in Seattle. The guard has averaged 16.1 points per game in his career and ranks No. 4 on the league's all-time list for three-point baskets.

The Mavericks are unlikely to match Boston's offer.

Donnie Nelson, Mavericks president of basketball operations, told The Dallas Morning News: "Unfortunately, we cannot jeopardize our flexibility at this time."

Dallas aggressively pursued guard Deron Williams, but the 28-year-old free agent decided to accept a five-year, $98 million contract to remain with the Nets, who have moved from New Jersey to Brooklyn.

Magic center Howard

is in demand

ORLANDO, Fla. — Orlando Magic executives realize they are unlikely to receive equal value if they trade center Dwight Howard.

The team's goal?

Minimize the damage.

The Magic hopes to ignite a bidding war between the Nets, Atlanta Hawks, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers and other teams that might attempt to acquire the disgruntled 26-year-old superstar.

Yahoo Sports reported Orlando has become increasingly focused on a trade package that includes center Andrew Bynum of the Lakers. But that might be a ploy by Orlando general manager Rob Hennigan to entice Brooklyn to find ways to take on an additional Magic contract.

Notes

• Celtics guard Ray Allen, the champion Heat's top target in free agency, is to meet with team officials in Miami on Thursday. The Heat, Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers are pursuing ex-Sonic Allen, 36.

• Guard Brandon Roy, attempting a comeback from severe knee problems, met with Golden State officials Sunday, a source said. The 27-year-old Roy — a former standout for the Washington Huskies and Garfield High in Seattle — reportedly also has attracted interest from Cleveland, Minnesota, Dallas, Chicago and Indiana.

• Guard Jamal Crawford, a graduate of Rainier Beach High in Seattle who played for Portland last season, visited the Clippers. Sources said the Clippers are willing to offer Crawford, 32, a three-year deal worth about $15.7 million.

• Guard Landry Fields, a restricted free agent who played for the New York Knicks last season, reached agreement with Toronto on a three-year offer sheet worth about $20 million. The Knicks have the right to match the offer.
