A. Sherrod Blakely broke the news on Twitter that the Celtics have re-signed Chris Wilcox. Soon after, Chris Forsberg confirmed the good news. Blakely also announced that Wilcox was very excited to be back with the team. The Herald is reporting that it is believed that he signed for the vet minimum.
The return of Wilcox is good news for the Celtics. Before the heart problem was discovered, he was playing very well. He runs the floor well and was getting very adept at receiving the alley oop passes from Rondo on the break. Wilcox also played solid defense and solves one of the Celtics biggest weaknesses in that he is a very good rebounder on both ends of the court. Excellent signing by the Celtics. Considering that Kwame Brown signed for 3 million a year and Omar Asik signed for 8 million a year, Chris Wilcox is a steal at the vet minimum. Wilcox expressed to CSNNE that he felt that he had unfinished business in Boston and looks forward to winning a title this year. with the Celtics.
