Boston Celtics' guard Keyon Dooling was waived on Thursday. According to his agent, he's going to retire.

Twelve-year NBA veteran Keyon Dooling has decided to call it a career. The Celtics waived the veteran guard on Thursday, and according to his agent, he's retiring:

"Keyon has decided that he has given the NBA 12 good years and that it's time to pursue other interests and spend more time with his family. He will never forget his time in Boston with the Celtics."

Dooling spent last season with the Boston Celtics, where he averaged 4.0 points and 1.1 assists in just over 14 minutes per game.
