D.J. White

The Celtics have signed D.J. White for the remainder of the season.

White averaged 2.8 points and 1.5 rebounds in just 6.8 minutes over four appearances since originally arriving in Boston from China on Feb. 28. The two sides reached a deal before the C’s had to part ways with the 6-foot-9, 250-pound big man upon completing the maximum of two 10-day contracts.

The Celtics announced “a multi-year contract” with White, and while terms of the deal were not disclosed, it’s likely the team owns an option for the 2013-14 season — much like the contract Terrence Williams signed earlier this month.

The next domino to fall should be Shavlik Randolph, whose second 10-day contract expires on Thursday. Randolph made the trip to New Orleans for the opener of the C’s three-game road trip, indicating the Celtics expect to reach a similar agreement with the journeyman forward.

The Celtics signed former Duke big man Shavlik Randolph to a 10-day contract on Friday. The 6-foot-10, 236-pounder is the C’s third Chinese Basketball Association import in the past two weeks.

Following the signings of CBA stars Terrence Williams and D.J. White, Randolph’s deal effectively fills the Celtics roster at 15. All three players were signed to 10-day contracts, and Yahoo! Sports columnist Adrian Wojnarowski reported Williams will sign for the remainder of the season and on a non-guaranteed deal in 2013-14.

This is what the Celtics must resort to after season-ending injuries to Rajon Rondo, Jared Sullinger and Leandro Barbosa. They’ll sign players off the scrap heap for 10 days at a time until someone better comes along, which they probably won’t. Meanwhile, they’ll kick the tires on the Lou Amundsons of the world. (After narrowing his list to the Heat, Knicks, Bulls and Celtics, Amundson “committed to Chicago,” his agent Mark Bartelstein said.)

“We’re just going to wait,” said Rivers, who doesn’t expect anybody of importance to become available on Friday’s buyout deadline. “That’s the only thing you have now. Once the buyout season is over, you basically just have overseas guys and free agents who are just out there, and usually they’re out there for a reason.”

Not exactly rolling out the red carpet for the C’s three newest Chinese imports, huh? Anyhow, let’s take a look at where the Celtics roster stands now that it’s full for really the first time all season.

The Celtics are interested in the services of former Bobcats big D.J. White, according to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein.

Playing alongside Gilbert Arenas on the Shanghai Sharks, White averaged 21.6 points, 9.7 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and 1.3 assists in 33.0 minutes a night over 32 games in the Chinese Basketball Association this season. The Sharks finished their season on Sunday. The 6-foot-9, 235-pound power forward averaged 14.0 points and 7.5 rebounds per 36 minutes in 124 games over four NBA seasons with the Thunder and Bobcats. He’s 26 years old.
