Celtics to Sign O’Bryant

No, that’s not Kobe Bryant…but soon-to-be Celtics center Patrick O’Bryant. Drafted in 2006 with the ninth pick, O’Bryant has played minimally in his two seasons with the Warriors.

According to the Boston Herald, The Celtics worked out the 7-footer, but reports from the workout were not good. Still, the Celtics pounced on the young center and gave him a two-year deal. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but one would have to assume that O’Bryant was signed for the league minimum.

In 40 games over the course of his career, O’Bryant has averaged just 1.7 points and 1.3 rebounds.

  1. This is an interesting pickup. The guy certainly has been a disappointment so far, and looking at Youtube highlights of him, looks like he still has some growing to do within his own body (looks a little uncoordinated).

    However, this is a very low risk, high reward pick. He will make the minimum, and on Mohegan Sun Sports Tonight I believe they said O’Bryant is the only (or is one of two) first round pick from 2006 whose option was not picked up.

    If he can be a servicable backup to Perk it would be a huge steal as we don’t have to rely on guys like Candy Man and Scott Pollard.
