2012 NBA Free Agency: Dionte Christmas, Boston Celtics Reach Agreement

Dionte Christmas has reached an agreement with the Boston Celtics, a team source told ESPNBoston.com on Sunday. The length and financial details of the contract have not yet been disclosed. In any case, Christmas didn't seem too hung up on the specifics when he commented after the C's summer league loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

"I actually got the call before the game started," Christmas said. "I don't really know all the details now, but I'm going to go over them with the staff. But I'm just happy, man, emotional. I actually got the call literally two minutes before the game started."

The Celtics were reportedly negotiating with Christmas' representatives throughout the week. If a deal didn't get done, the 25-year-old shooting guard may have gone to Europe instead.

Christmas has played very well during the 2012 Orlando and Las Vegas summer leagues, though he had a rough outing Sunday. He finished with six points on 1-for-4 shooting, making it the first time this summer he didn't score in double digits.
