Shaq signs with the Celtics

The Celtics [1] announced on their team website that they have come to terms with Shaquille O’Neal [2].

“It is not every day that you can add a player of Shaquille’s caliber to your team,” Danny Ainge said in the release. “His past experience speaks for itself and we believe that he is a great fit for our roster.”

And here’s the Shaq quote:

“I am honored to be joining the Celtics. I have played against Paul, Ray, Kevin, Rajon, and Jermaine for many years and it will be great to be able to call them my teammates. I cannot wait to get to Boston to get started in pursuit of another championship.”

According to the report O’Neal will wear No. 36.
