Celtics Sign Carlos Arroyo

BOSTON - APRIL 27: Rajon Rondo #9 of the Boston Celtics heads for the net as Carlos Arroyo #8 of the Miami Heat defends during Game Five of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals of the 2010 NBA playoffs at the TD Garden on April 27, 2010 in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Herald reports:

The Celtics, in their search for a backup point guard while Delonte West recovers from a sprained ankle, have come to terms with Carlos Arroyo on a pro-rated veteran’s minimum contract for the rest of the season, according to a team source.

Arroyo, pending a physical, may join the team tomorrow in Milwaukee.

Arroyo had been waived by Miami earlier this week to make way for the team’s signing of Mike Bibby, and was one of two veteran playmakers the Celtics were looking at. The other was thought to be Antonio Daniels, the long-time veteran who is attempting a comeback with the Texas Legends of the NBDL.

I'm pretty happy with this signing; it only improves our depth even more. 

Arroyo's stats this year:  5.6 points, 1.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 45.8% FG%, 43.8% 3PT% in 20.3 minutes per game over 49 games (42 starts)
