C's sign Sullinger, Melo, Joseph
One day after introducing the rookies, Boston formally announced it had reached an agreement with first-round picks Jared Sullinger and Fab Melo and second-round pick Kris Joseph.
Terms of the deal were not announced, but the base salary for first-round picks was slotted at $1.089 million for Sullinger (21st overall pick) and $1.045 million (22nd). First-round draft picks can be inked at up to 120 percent of that base salary, which the Celtics have done in each of the past two seasons, giving first-round picks Avery Bradley (19th in 2010) and JaJuan Johnson (27th in 2011) a slight bump.
Second-round contracts typically check in at the minimum, which for next season is $473,604.
