Celtics officially announce the signings and jersey numbers of Tristan Thompson and Jeff Teague

Now that the Gordon Hayward sign-and-trade has been completed the Celtics were able to announce the signings of Tristan Thompson and Jeff Teague. I beleive if the Celtics had gotten back players for Hayward, they would have had to use other exceptions and means to sign these two. Maybe a sign-and-trade with Cavs. Regardless that doesn't matter now. The Celtics are now hard capped according to Bobby Marks. Tristan Thompson becomes the rare new player that actually gets to keep his number on the Celtics. He will remain #13, while Jeff Teague has chosen #55, most famously previously worn by Eric Williams and Wally Szczerbiak. Welcome to Boston Tristan and Jeff. Green suits both of you.
