Quantcast


Over the past few weeks rumors have swirled that Danny Ainge and the Celtics weren't done making moves. It's not exactly what the C's faithful were hoping for but on Saturday the team officially announced the re-signing of Tyler Zeller. The club also game to terms with second-round pick Demetrius Jackson:



Zeller, who averaged 6.1 points and three rebounds a game last season for Boston, will come back on a two-year deal with a team option for the second season.

Inking the seven-footer adds depth to the front court. Zeller may not wow you on the court, but he is a reliable shooter, making 48 percent of his attempts for the Celtics last year:



As far as Jackson, he is a much needed ball-handler in the backcourt. The 21-year-old out of Notre Dame was selected 45th overall in last months draft:



As a three-year member of the Fighting Irish, Jackson averaged 11.7 points, while dishing out 3.3 assists and grabbing 3.1 rebounds per contest.
