Celtics coach Doc Rivers said the C's are close to signing former NBAer D.J. White to a 10-day contract. White, who spent five seasons in the NBA split between Oklahoma City and Charlotte, spent this past season with the Shanghai Sharks in the Chinese Basketball Association. "We pretty much think it's a done deal," said Celtics coach Doc Rivers. "But it's never a done deal until it's done."

According to Google, DJ White is an impressive cornerback prospect, ...wait, what? Oh, right.

Rivers hasn’t given much thought, yet, to how White would fit in. “I just (go into the locker room) and say, he’s here when it gets done,” said Rivers. “We pretty much think it’s a done deal, but it’s never done until it’s done. I didn’t know a lot about him. He was in Oklahoma City, Charlotte. We went over three or four guys, and this is one of those things where you listen to Danny and Austin (Ainge). They give you their opinion. I told them what I need, but I also said whatever they thought was the best player. Two weeks ago when (Jared Sullinger) went down, I said we’re just looking for whatever they think is the best player.”
