Celtics to sign D.J. White for the rest of the season

The Celtics will sign D.J. White after the expiration of his second 10-day contract, according to a report from Jessica Camerato of CSNNE.com.

White has appeared in four games for Boston this season, averaging 2.8 points and 1.5 rebounds in seven minutes of action per game. He did not appear in the Celtics’ close loss to the Heat on Tuesday — despite the absence of Kevin Garnett, Doc Rivers chose to go just eight deep into his rotation, with Chris Wilcox being the only big to get any minutes off the bench.

White has likely been added to the roster not to appear in games, but to be a solid and serviceable healthy body for the team to roll out during practices. Rivers wishes to give his veterans some extra rest in preparation for the run into the postseason, and having White around for the remainder of the season will allow him to do exactly that.

    Paid a few hundred thousand to sit around and possibly win a ring. Not a bad deal.
