Report: Ryan Gomes coming to Celtics as part of Courtney Lee for Jerryd Bayless trade

The Thunder’s Ryan Gomes  will be returning to the Celtics  — if only in name — along with the Grizzlies ‘ Jerryd Bayless as part of the Courtney Lee  trade, according to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein .
Gomes’ involvement in the deal appears to be a salary dump by Oklahoma City to help facilitate the trade and create a small amount of cap space, Stein reported. The Celtics  are expected to waive the former Providence College star before the remainder of his $884,293 salary becomes guaranteed on Tuesday.
Gomes has appeared in just five games for the Thunder this season, scoring all of six points in 34 total minutes. The 31-year-old forward averaged 10.0 points and 5.3 rebounds over his first two NBA seasons in Boston after the Celtics  selected him with their second-round draft pick in 2005. He was traded to the Timberwolves  in 2007 as part of the Kevin Garnett  deal.
Second-round picks may also be involved in the trade, Stein said.
