Celtics News: Boston signs Randolph, extend Williams



BOSTON– According to a report from Chris Forsberg of ESPNBoston.com, the Celtics have signed another big man, with the hopes of adding another formidable presence inside the paint. Boston is set to sign power forward Shavlik Randolph to a 10- day contract according to team sources connected with Forsberg.

The Raleigh, North Carolina native has played in 95 games over an NBA career that has spanned five years. However, he has not played in the league since the 2009-10 campaign in which he split time with the Miami Heat and Portland Trail Blazers, appearing in six combined games that season.

Randolph spent the start of this season with the Foshan Lions of the Chinese Basketball League. This makes him the third Celtics signing in 10 days who has come out of China. He played very well while there, averaging 32 points and 14.6 rebounds in 28 appearances for the Lions.

As noted in the article, he is a ferocious rebounder. In the minimal NBA action that he has seen, he has posted an offensive rebound rate of 15.1%. His rebounding skills will be very beneficial for Boston especially rotation-wise, as now they have multiple big men that can come off the bench. The Celtics have appeared to address their rebounding needs, and that is a good sign as the team gears up for a playoff run.

According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski the Celtics have signed guard Terrence Williams for the remainder of the season and conditionally for the 2013-14 campaign. His original contract was a 10-day agreement. Williams has put up respectable numbers during his time with the Celtics so far. In four games, he has averaged 4.3 points and 2.7 rebounds in 14.1 minutes. His versatility and his ability to get teammates involved will be key assets as the playoffs approach.
