The fact forward D.J. White is going to sign with the Celtics is not new news — he’s actually been hanging around the team waiting for the time to come.

But the fact he finally got clearance from his Chinese team to do so is new. The letter has come and White is expected to sign a 10-day contract with the Celtics in the next 24 hours, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

White is not going to be a game changer for the Celtics, but he does provide Boston a little needed depth up front. They will need that depth as Doc Rivers starts trying to get key guys rest the last weeks of the regular season. Which he has all but said he would do.

White was drafted by the Pistons at the end of the first round in 2008, was traded to the Thunder and spent the past season and a half before this one with the Bobcats, before deciding to play overseas this season.

    You don’t need a comma after China in the title.

      Yes it does. He got clearance from China…now he is to sign with the Celts. Separate thoughts, poorly chosen but grammatically correct nonetheless.

    The ONE player that will put em over the top

    I’m interested to see what he can do. I know players with 10-day contracts don’t tend to get a lot of burn, but I always thought he had potential to develop into a role player. I’m interested to see if he’s gotten closer to fulfilling that potential.
