Jessica Camerato is reporting on CSNNE.com that the Celtics will sign DJ White for the remainder of the season. The Celtics gave White a pair of 10 day contracts to prove himself. He played sparingly over those 20 days, averaging 2.8 points and 1.5 rebounds in seven minutes per game. Last week he had his best outing as he scored 6 points on 3-4 shooting in just 5 minutes of play against the Charlotte Bobcats.
White gives the Celtics another big body to give Kevin Garnett a break during games and, most importantly during practice. He has proved that he can contribute when given the minutes and he gives the Celtics another rebounder, which they very much need with Doc needing to keep KG fresh for the playoffs and with Jared Sullinger on the shelf. I expect that we will see White get more minutes down the stretch as Doc looks to rest the veterans more.
