Bits of Celtics housekeeping via ESPN's Jeff Goodman: The Celtics formally extended a $3.7 million qualifying offer to make Tyler Zeller a restricted free agent. The team also shifted the guarantee dates on the contracts of Amir Johnson ($12 million) and Jonas Jerebko ($5 million) from July 3 to July 7. That affords the team extra time to navigate the initial stages of free agency before making decisions on those players.
