Forward Shavlik Randolph will sign his second 10-day contract with the Boston Celtics on Monday morning, agent Joel Bell told RealGM.
After signing a first 10-day deal on March 1, Randolph has yet to play in a game for the Celtics. But the 29-year-old big man traveled with the Celtics on their two-game road trip and coach Doc Rivers has made clear to management his desire to keep intact the current roster heading into the final month of the regular season.
The Celtics also signed D.J. White to a second 10-day contract on Sunday.
White and Randolph were both signed to add big man depth to the Celtics after the season ending injury to Jared Sullinger and the Jason Collins trade. Celtics Life columnist Eric Blaisdell correctly predicted that White would not get much playing time in Boston and that has in fact been the case for White and Randolph. Right now the back-up bigs for the Celtics are Chris Wilcox and Jeff Green and barring a losing streak or injury, don't expect to see much from Randolph or White right now. They could get big minutes during the final week of the season when playoff teams often rest their big minute players. It should be noted that Terrence Williams received a contract for the rest of the season (and an option for 2014) after his 1st 10-day expired, while these two bigmen only got 2nd 10-days. Could mean nothing though.
In other news that might mean something (but very likely might not) the Celtics D-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws, traded for Josh Selby this week.
