The Celtics appears poised to put the final pieces of their roster in place by the end of this week, after signing Mikki Moore yesterday, and with Stephon Marbury finally agreeing to a buyout from the New York Knicks. Marbury is expected to sign with the Celtics as early as Friday, when he will clear waivers.

Spears has more on Marbury, who hasn’t played in a regular season game since January of 2008. Jeff Goodman also says that the signs all point to Marbury signing here on Friday. Robert Lee has Rajon Rondo and KG expressing support of a Marbury signing.
