The JaVale McGee era in Boston is over before it began.
Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald:

JaVale McGee will NOT be coming to the Celtics. The sides couldn’t reach agreement on a contract.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:

JaVale McGee and Boston couldn’t agree on option for next season, league source tells Yahoo. Celtics wanted team option; McGee player option
— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) March 5, 2015

That second season was obviously critical. The amount of the guarantee and whether it contained a team or player option would significantly impact McGee. The Celtics surely wanted to give themselves a chance at a bargain if they rehabilitated him. McGee could have been pushing for either a higher guarantee or the ability to become a free agent after this season.
Now, McGee, a free agent can turn to his numerous reported suitors.
And Brad Stevens can breathe a sigh of relief.
