It has been confirmed.  As reported by A. Sherrod Blakely, former Suns’ and Magic wingman Mickael Pietrus will sign with the Celtics for the veteran minimum.

Mickael Pietrus, who negotiated a buyout with the Phoenix Suns on Thursday, cleared waivers Saturday night and as expected, has committed to sign with the Boston Celtics.
His agent, Bill McCandless, told CSNNE.com Saturday night that he was in the process of finalizing a contract with the Celtics.
McCandless did not indicate the terms of the new deal, but the Celtics only have the veteran's minimum available.That means the eight-year veteran would receive a pro-rated salary of about $1.2 million.

This is a big addition for the Celtics, as Pietrus will play a significant role filling in at small forward since Jeff Green is out for the season and Paul Pierce is expected to miss the season opener.  He won’t be available when the Celtics kick off the NBA season against the Knicks tomorrow, but I am eager to see MP in Celtics’ colors as soon as possible.

    This is great news, great news indeed. Loss of Green hurts, but this is the best remedy possible out there.

    As long as his right knee is OK, he will be a very good addition. Too bad he's not ready for the opener, we wouldn't have to start Pavlovic.

    Yes!!! Awesome news!

    Which number do you think he'll choose?

    So far he's worn #2, #20 and #12 in his NBA career, all of them unavailable. I guess he will choose #42 or some strange number like #26, #27, #28 or #29...what do you think?

    In any case, good signing by Ainge...we got some Xmas luck after all. Now the only doubt is to know if we will keep Stiemsma or we will try to sign someone like Pryzbilla
