Tony Gaffney signs with Celtics?

Is this some kind of a joke?
BOSTON, Mass (abc40) - Former UMass forward Tony Gaffney has signed with the Boston Celtics.  The team will make the announcement official Tuesday at noon.  Gaffney confirmed the details to abc40 via text message early Tuesday morning.
The Celtics are on the road Tuesday night in Chicago taking on Vinny Del Negro and the Bulls.  Gaffney may catch a flight to Chicago and dress for the game.
Who is this guy?  Is this legit?  This makes no sense?  Is it similar to that guy the Knicks signed after the college season a couple years back from I think Kentucky?

Anyways figured it was worth posting.
