Boston Celtics attempt to sign Italian forward Gigi Datome

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. 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".
