According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the two-year center has agreed to a two-year deal, worth $10 million to stay in Boston. The news dropped moments after French center Vincent Poirier reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with the Celtics, rounding out the center position on Brad Stevens' depth chart.

After agreeing to terms with All-Star point guard Kemba Walker, Boston has transitioned to addressing the frontcourt in light of reeling in Enes Kanter and Poirier. Theis will rejoin Robert Williams and Guerschon Yabusele up front and look to expand his role with the Celtics.
He's averaged 5.5 points, 3.9 rebounds in 14.3 minutes throughout his two years in Boston. Theis posted the following tweet shortly after the news broke.
