Apparently now it is officially official.

In case you were wondering:

Boston Celtics news 2013: Colton Iverson's deal with Besiktas of the Turkish League is for 1 year | masslive.com

Boston Celtics draft pick Colton Iverson signed a one-year deal with Besiktas of the Turkish League, a source with knowledge of the situation told MassLive.com early Friday morning. The team issued a press release announcing the Iverson signing last week but nothing was official at that time.

Gary Washburn tweeted out something along the lines of the Shavlik Randolph move possibly freeing up a roster spot for Iverson, but it looks like that wasn't the case. I'd say it is more likely the agent was waiting until August 1st to see if the Celtics would make more moves to free up roster spots for Iverson and possibly Randolph as well. That didn't happen so off goes Colton to Turkey.

So the Celtics are down two centers and are left with Fab Melo and a bunch of power forwards playing out of position at the 5. Good times.
