Boston now has 15 players with guaranteed contracts on the books, which is the maximum a team is allowed to carry during the regular season. Second round draft pick Colton Iverson remains unsigned for now, and at this point, the team would have to create a spot to add him.
Randolph was a late-season addition to the Celtics, but managed to make an impact in his brief time with the team. Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston dug up some fairly impressive numbers:
Over 16 regular-season appearances, Randolph averaged 4.2 points and 4.4 rebounds over 12.4 minutes. He grabbed 26.3 percent of all available defensive rebounds during his time on the floor and 22.4 percent of all caroms overall, which were the best numbers on the team, albeit in a small sample size of 198 minutes.
Randolph was on NBA rosters for five total seasons with the Sixers, Blazers, and Heat, and played the last two-plus seasons overseas before getting the call to join the Celtics in March.
