NBA Free Agency Rumors 2012: Chris Wilcox Expects To Re-Sign With Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics anticipate re-signing free agent big man Chris Wilcox, A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE reported on Friday, and the 29-year-old Wilcox seems to believe it's a done deal.

Wilcox averaged 5.4 points and 4.4 rebounds in 17.2 minutes per game with the Celtics last season, but his season was cut short in March when a routine examination revealed that he had a cardiac irregularity that required season-ending heart surgery.

Wilcox recently returned to the court, and is not expected to experience any long-term issues as a result of his repaired heart condition. It's not yet clear whether he will receive a veteran's minimum contract or sign with a deal that is more substantial.
