Celtics sign Scot Pollard

Boston has a new veteran center. "The Celtics agreed to terms with free agent forward/center Scot Pollard. The 6-foot-11-inch, 265-pound Pollard got a one-year deal believed to be worth the veteran minimum ($1.2 million for 10 years service). He adds a much-needed big man to the Celtics' frontcourt and raises the number of players under contract to 12, one shy of the league minimum."
