Larkin’s terms were not made public in line with team policy, per the post on Celtics.com. However, Weiss reported more from sources earlier today:
The Celtics have completed the Shane Larkin signing. One year vet min per sources.— Jared Weiss (@JaredWeissNBA) July 31, 2017
The guard leaves behind an offer in Spain more than three times the veteran minimum, perhaps signaling that joining at team well positioned to challenge the Cleveland Cavaliers for the top spot in the NBA’s Eastern Conference is more alluring than cold hard cash.
While the Celtics are stacked with a versatile frontcourt, Larkin will fill in behind a slimmer core of guards, led by Isaiah Thomas and Marcus Smart. In his most recent season stateside with the Nets, he offered solid shooting percentages (44.2% FG, 36.1% 3-PT) and decent playmaking ability (4.4 assists on 22 minutes).
