Report: Celtics sign Gilbert Brown


According to CSNNE's Carolyn Manno and A. Sherrod Blakely, the Celtics have signed free-agent SF Gilbert Brown of Pitt. Manno tweeted the news about 30 minutes ago, and followed with another message stating that Brown would arrive in Boston tonight or tomorrow and would be in camp on Friday.

So who is Gilbert Brown? Brown played 5 seasons at Pittsburgh (redshirted) at small forward, and was known for his explosive athleticism. At one point last season, he was called the "most athletic perimeter player in the country." At 6-6 & 215 lbs he's not a monster, but has a ridiculous vertical leap that enables him to finish strong. He averaged 8 points and 3 rebounds over a 129 game NCAA career and shot 75% from the charity stripe. Oh, and most importantly, he does have a Twitter.

Video highlights, after the jump.
