Celtics set to sign Chris Babb

The somewhat depleted Celtics are expected to sign 6’5 guard Chris Babb to a 10-day contract Saturday afternoon.

Due to all the latest injuries, Boston was looking add some depth in the back court since there is no estimated timetable for when Avery Bradley will return, and he has already been ruled out against the Pacers tomorrow night. And Rajon Rondo is still not playing on second nights of back-to-backs yet

Babb was the last player to be cut by the Celtics during training camp and has been playing for the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League. For the season he has averages of 12 points, 6.1 rebounds and is shooting 35 percent from behind the arc.

He should be a nice fit into the rotation, and he is already familiar with Brad Stevens' system. Chris should be available to play versus Indiana at TD Garden Saturday night.

It was reported the Celtics were looking at back-up point guard Rodrigue Beaubois as a possible signing also. He worked out in practice on Wednesday with the team and had a ‘good showing’. It is unknown if they had a deal still in the works, or if it fell through. For the time being there are no new updates. We will keep you posted with any other potential moves.
