Hello everyone, it's finally July 1st, free agency period! The first report of our team signing someone and it's some international guy I have never heard about. WEEI.com reports that the Boston Celtics are the front-runners to sign Italian forward Gigi Datome. He is a 6'8, 220 pound, 25 year-old small forward that won MVP in the Serie A Regular in Italy averaging 16.4 points per game and 4.3 rebounds.

I don't know much about the guy, looking at the highlights he looks like Jiri Welsch 2.0. Danny Ainge hasn't had a great overseas prospect since Semih Erden. Let's hope he can contribute right away.

What do you think guys? Comment below. I guess any young prospect works for me.

PS, if we sign him we can win the "The Team with the Best-Hair Award".
