The Boston Celtics are expected to sign rookie Tiny Gallon to non-guaranteed deal

  1. Sources say that Gallon will likely end up with Boston's NBA Development League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws, once the season begins.
  2. The Boston Celtics are expected to sign rookie Tiny Gallon to non-guaranteed deal, according to sources. Milwaukee cut Gallon two weeks ago.

I like it too. The Celtics

I like it too. The Celtics must have the highest average weight in the NBA with Shaq, Big Baby, and now Tiny!

No real hard can be done

No real hard can be done here. It's not guaranteed, and he can develop some in the D-League. And if he doesn't, they have nothing to worry about. I like this. Low risk, possibly (relatively) high reward.

Gotta agree with

Gotta agree with fastforward322. Why don't they just bring Kevin Duckworth and Oliver Miller out of retirement while they're at it?

I know you aren't being serious about bringing those guys back, but Kevin Duckworth passed away a couple of years ago.

Maybe Tiny will balance out

Maybe Tiny will balance out the bench when either Shaq or Davis is on court, it will be a tight fit for the smaller guys!

I'm not big on Gallon, but I

I'm not big on Gallon, but I won't argue he still has potential to become a decent pro player. Pretty good signing for the oldest team in the league. Got a 2nd round talent for next to nothing and see if he makes any improvement this year before breaking out the big bucks.

It is going to be a lot

It is going to be a lot harder for him to eat properly on the $15 per diem for meals he is going to get in the NBDL. Maybe he can negotiate that number up to $20 or $30, but it is still whatever is close to the arena or hotel in Fort Wayne or Sioux Falls. For the Celtics, it is a nothing investment. They have a guy who had he not been at risk of losing his eligibility at OU could have ended up being a first round pick in a year or so. They have his rights, they'll have coaches they trust working with him, and if he progresses well enough could come in handy down the line. The Celtics are probably going to need to add another small forward capable of guarding LeBron in midseason. They might have to put forth a two or three for one with their young guys (Bradley, Davis, Perkins, perish the though of including the future HOFer Harangody, but you get the point) and end up adding him just to be an extra big body.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Well, now I just feel like an ass.

And Rudeboy, props on working a "Weekend at Bernie's" reference into the conversation. Such a great movie. :)

something tells me they're

something tells me they're signing him just so they can release him and take advantage of the new d-league rule that would allow them to keep him on their d-league roster without the Red Claws having to draft him

Yeah, Rudeboy, I caught that.

Yeah, Rudeboy, I caught that. I love that movie. I'd just forgotten about Duckworth's passing when I wrote that.

Maybe I should have suggested

Maybe I should have suggested the Celtics sign Khalid El-Amin instead.

Imagine Eddy Curry finally

Imagine Eddy Curry finally gets waived and they sign him, that would be one massive scramble if they held a team bonding day at KFC!
