Well, it looks like the question I asked in my last post has been answered. Via ESPN Boston’s Chris Forsberg:
Sources: Celtics set to ink veteran big man Jason Collins to a one-year, veteran minimum deal. Adds 7-footer to bench.
Collins is 7-feet tall. I think that is obviously the most important part of this transaction. A solid back-up center who has plenty of experience. I personally like having one more center than Melo on the roster, even if it is Collins. Here are Collins’ stats etc. via ESPN.
