Boston Celtics Sign Keyond Dooling And 3 Others Tuesday

The Boston Celtics' front office was busy Tuesday, announcing the signings of four players. Keyon Dooling re-signed for a second season, while Jason Collins, Jamar Smith and Dionte Christmas were all brought in as free agents.

Dooling is a 12-year veteran of the NBA. He averaged just 4.0 points and 1.1 assists in 14.4 minutes per game last season. He was instrumental at times during the playoffs in place of a hobbled Ray Allen. He scored a season-high 18 points on Dec. 27 against the Miami Heat.

Collins looks to fill the strong defensive role that Greg Stiemsma held coming off the bench last season for the Celtics. The 7'0 Collins averaged 1.3 points and 1.6 rebounds in 10.3 minutes per game last season with the Atlanta Hawks.

Smith and Christmas both shined during summer league play this season. Smith played well in particular, averaging 9.2 points per game while shooting 45 percent from beyond the 3-point arc. Christmas starred for AGO Reythymno Aegean in Greece last season, averaging 18.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.6 steals per game.

Terms of the deals were not disclosed per team policy.
