Source: Jermaine O'Neal Agrees To Deal With Celtics

The Celtics may have found their newest big man.

Just a day after learning Jermaine O'Neal was "leaning toward" joining the Celtics, the free agent center has reportedly agreed to sign with Boston, this according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

Wojnarowski reported on Wednesday that Boston’s offer would be for the mid-level exception (roughly $5.8 million) for each of the next two seasons.

O'Neal, an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career at 31 years old, spent his past two seasons with Miami, and in 2009-10, he averaged 13.6 points and 6.9 rebounds in about 28 minutes per game (his lowest total since the 1999-2000 campaign with Portland).

With Kenrdick Perkins out until December (at least), and Rasheed Wallace likely retiring, Boston had actively been looking to sign a big man through free agency.
