Celtics Sign Shavlik Randolph to a 10-Day Contract


It appears as though the Celtics have just signed Shavlik Randolph to a 10-day contract, per RealGM. The former Duke product has bounced around the fringes of the NBA for five years and most recently played in China. This signing makes me wonder two thing:

1) After getting an extended look at DJ White in an empty gym, are they having a little buyers remorse?

2) Now that the C’s have added two big men for the short term, does this signal more resting time for Kevin Garnett?

3) The guy can rebound and the C’s don’t have many guys that can do that right now.

It also pretty much confirms that they have “missed out” on Lou Amundson, who is rumored to be closed to signing with the Bulls, according to multiple reports.

We’ll have more analysis on this move in the coming hours…but for now check out some highlights of Randolph in action

    At this point, we're looking at guys who aren't good. Whether they suck, stink, or are just bad basketball players isn't going to make a material difference in how the Celtics finish the season. They're big, tall dudes who hopefully can come in for 10 mins a night and not screw things up royally.

    10 mins is a pipe dream. These guys are gonna play under 5 mins. 10 only if we’re getting blown out.

    These guys are just members of the 20-20 Club. They get run when their team is either 20 points ahead or 20 points behind.

  • The Cardinal

    Brendan, I'll take a shot at answering whether this signing has anything to do with DJ White, – I'm gonna guess "not directly." I'm betting that some of the key thinking involved as to who to sign were as follow:
    1) Any one that's released by an NBA team today is not going to be anyone we want or that will want to come to Boston (and that's a biggie when you look at teams like SA, Chicago, Dallas and possibly Miami who will be looking to swoop in on any half-way decent big being released);
    2) We want someone in NBA-ready condition and who can run the floor and is willing to bring energy and battle like hell (which again rules out the 34 y/o and older retreads that may get released);
    3) We want to concentrate on bigs who maybe do one thing pretty well, and hope that for a few minutes per half, they will give us that one thing and as the poster Vincent said: "not screw up royally;" and
    4) Heaven forbid if we lose another big to injury but if we do, we want guys who theoretically have some upside potential that might surprise us rather than bringing in another Jason Collins type who at best is a space filler.

    Read somewhere Randolph averaged 32 points, 14.5 reboutns In 28 games for his Chinese team. While not NBA-quality competition, he can at least be servicable for 10 days. After that, the team can see what their options are. Low risk signing.
