French center Vincent Poirier agrees to two year deal with the Celtics
The Celtics continued to replenish their big men today reaching agreement with French center Vincent Poirier who they previously pursued this past season.
It's reportedly a two year, minimum contract. Poirier turned down the Celtics during the season when they tried to add him for the playoff push as he wanted an opportunity with more playing time. With the defection of Al Horford to Philly, he will get that opportunity in Boston this up coming season.

Vincent Poirier has been on the Celtics' radar for quite some time. "Since the beginning of time," said a source, who added that the return of Daniel Theis remains a possibility.— Mark Murphy (@Murf56) July 2, 2019
