Mark Deeks from ShamSports.com provides an update on Keyon Dooling's contract buyout:

That appears to cut Boston's cap charge (previously $854,839) in half. By our count, the team will enter the season on the hook for roughly $71.9 million in committed salary for their 15 roster players (as well as partial guarantees to waived players like Dionte Christmas and Jamar Smith). Boston is hard-capped at the $74.3 million tax apron after utilizing the full value of the mid-level exception this offseason to sign Jason Terry.
