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.
