Boston Celtics re-sign Chris Wilcox

This was expected. The Celtics wanted Chris Wilcox back, he wanted to come back.

So it’s a done deal. The two sides reach an agreement Friday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com.

“I definitely feel I have some unfinished business,” Wilcox told CSNNE.com shortly before agreeing to re-join the Celtics.

In a phone interview with CSNNE.com, Wilcox said he was, “excited to be back.”

Wilcox missed the end of last season after having to have heart surgery. Prior to stepping away Wilcox had given the Celtics a solid 17 minutes a night, with 5.4 points and 4.4 rebounds.

The Celtics have a deep frontcourt now to help keep Kevin Garnett’s minutes down — Wilcox, Jared Sullinger (who impressed at Orlando Summer League), Fab Melo and starter Brandon Bass. If you’re going small you can run Jeff Green at the four, but I don’t recommend it (his numbers drop off fast).

      Please child. That Championship belongs to the MIAMI HEAT. Now and in the future.

    Canton: The Cavs suck, that’s so sad, and so are you.

    Jealousy is an ugly vice.

    Well, he does know something about playing a supporting role on a championship team, and he outlasted all of his classmates in the NBA- though it was obvious he had the most Pro potential.

    I think the Celtics need to re-sign Pietrus for the biannual exception and work some magic to acquire Courtney Lee. If they can do both of those things, they are legit contenders against anyone, Heat included.

    Holy Shat… the balance of power just shifted to boston… if only they had him for game 6 and 7 of the ECFs… they needed someone to be a closer and clutch. MIAMI HEAT 2012 NBA CHAMPS!!!

    I detect a note of sarcasm in these comments.
    As a Boston fan who watches every game, however, I am quite pleased with this move. Wilcox has good hands and knows how to move without the ball and he had developed good chemistry with Rondo on the fast break. The more slashers on this team, the more devastating the offense.
    If Wilcox and Bass step up their defense a tad this year, which they will after a year in the system, the Celtics will once again be the most underrated team in the East. Just one game from knocking off Miami this year, and the Celtics were way more devastated by injuries. Look out.

    Try as you might, you can search the web over, and you won’t find any bigger losers than truth and cane. Vicariously living through a sports team is no way to go through life. Have either of you seen a grown woman naked that hasn’t been in a book or on the net? Pathetic.
