C's sign White for rest of season
By Chris Forsberg
The Boston Celtics formally announced Wednesday that they have re-signed forward D.J. White for the remainder of the season.
White appeared in four games while playing on two 10-day contracts, averaging 2.8 points and 1.5 rebounds over 6.8 minutes per contest. The Celtics had to decide whether to sign him for the rest of the year or cut him loose with league rules allowing no more than two 10-day pacts.
Much like the deal inked by Terrence Williams, White's contract is expected to include an option for next season that will allow him to work with the team this summer with the potential to be retained at a low-cost salary.
Celtics forward Shavlik Randolph is playing the final day of his second 10-day contract on Wednesday. Coach Doc Rivers told reporters at the team's shootaround in New Orleans that the team plans to sign Randolph for the remainder of the season as well, according to the Boston Globe.
