SURPRISE! Celtics about to sign Sean Williams

Sean williamsNo one saw this one coming.  

Former Boston College Eagle, most recently of the Dallas Mavericks, is close to signing with the Boston Celtics and will be available for the Atlanta Hawks game tomorrow night. 

The Celtics are officially waiving Jermaine O'Neal to make room for Williams.  

Williams cleared waivers on March 26. The 6-10, 235-pounder averaged 3.6 points, 1.6 rebounds and 8.1 minutes in eight games with the Mavericks but averaged 15.2 points, 8.9 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in 27 games for the Texas Legends, Dallas' D-League affiliate.

This makes Williams eligible for the playoffs.  I'm not sure what you can expect out of him.  But he's 6'10", and he can block some shots.

I'm hoping this means KG is getting some rest to close out the season.
