Stein: Celts looking at big man White
Hearing that Celtics have former Charlotte big man D.J. White in their sights for 10-day deal now that White's season in China is over— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 22, 2013
In their search for front-line help in the wake of losing center Jason Collins in Thursday's trade for Wizards guard Jordan Crawford, the Boston Celtics might be looking at former Charlotte Bobcats big man D.J. White, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.
White recently wrapped up a season in the Chinese Basketball Association with the Shanghai Sharks, but had previously spent four seasons in the NBA with the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Bobcats.
In 124 NBA games, the 6-foot-9 White averaged 6.3 points and 3.4 rebounds on 50.7 percent shooting from the field in 16.3 minutes per game.
White was selected 29th overall in the 2008 draft by the Detroit Pistons (later traded to Seattle; now Oklahoma City) after four standout years at Indiana University.
