ESPN Boston reports that the Celtics will sign center Jason Collins to a one year deal for the veteran's minimum of $1.35 million.
After Celtics' free agent center Greg Stiemsma agreed to sign an offer sheet with the Minnesota Wolves, Celtics wasted no time in finding his replacement. At 7'0", Collins can rebound and will also be a valuable asset on the defensive end for the Celtics' bench. He completes the front court rotation and will help give KG the rest he'll need throughout the season. He's no Darko, but he'll fit in perfectly.
