Ryan Hollins On The Verge Of Joining The Celtics

After much speculation, it looks like Ryan Hollins will become the newest member of the Boston Celtics. Chris Wilcox will be waived and Hollins could be available tomorrow vs. the Sixers. It also looks like we lost out on the Boris Diaw sweepstakes, but will probably still be in the market for another big man to replace Jermaine O'Neal.

I've gone on record saying that I like this signing. It's also comforting knowing that Garnett and Pierce are familiar with his game after working out with him during the lockout.

UPDATE: Here's a quote from Danny from A. Sherrod Blakely piece on Hollins signing:

They (Pierce and Garnett) really liked his game and the way he could play with them. I think he would fit in well with what we do.
