Boston Signs Jason Collins

In Free Agency on July 21, 2012 at 10:39 pm

Chris Forsberg tweets

Sources: Celtics set to ink veteran big man Jason Collins to a one-year, veteran minimum deal. Adds 7-footer to bench.


Excellent Signing

A physically strong post defender who can give the team some minutes against bigger front-lines. Collins did a very nice job on Dwight Howard for Atlanta in the last couple of years.

Not as strong a rebounder as a Jamaal Magloire or an Eric Dampier but has better feet, em, more mobility, defensively. Two players I was hoping Danny Ainge was targeting for that third string center role. So Boston lose some rebounding to gain some more defensive range with Jason Collins over either of them.
