This past Tuesday, a source close to Ryan Hollins told WFNY that the recently released center would “have a new home” after clearing waivers. Two days later, Hollins has in fact cleared waivers — no team wanted to be on the hook for the remainder of his $3 million player option — and it appears that a new home is indeed on the horizon.

Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England reports that a deal between Hollins and the Boston Celtics could be consumated as early as this evening with the player being available on Friday evening when Boston plays the Philadelphia 76ers.

Celtics stalwarts Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett had the opportunity to play alongside Hollins this past offseason and reportedly feel that the 7-footer would fit in nicely within Boston’s system.

Hollins and the Cavaliers decided to split, amicably, after the center was all but completely removed from the team’s rotation to allow rookie Tristan Thompson some additional playing time. Through 24 games, in what was mostly reserve minutes for the Cavs, Hollins averaged 3.7 points and 2.3 rebounds.

The Cavaliers’ roster still stands at 14. It is expected that the team will sign either another D-League prospect or a recently released, post-trade deadline casualty.
