Celtics get Batista and Jones

From the Associated Press:

The Boston Celtics have signed center Esteban Batista and swingman Dahntay Jones to round out their training camp roster.

The 6-foot-10 Batista, who is from Uruguay, averaged 1.5 points and 2.3 rebounds per game in limited playing time with Atlanta last season. The 24-year-old led last month’s FIBA Americas Championship in rebounding with 12.4 per game.

Jones, 26, was drafted by the Celtics with the 20th pick in 2003, the immediately sent to Memphis as part of a deal for Marcus Banks.

The 6-foot-6 Jones played four years for the Grizzlies, averaging 7.5 points and 2 rebounds per game last season.

Terms of the deals were not disclosed. The Celtics now have 17 players on their roster, two over the league maximum.
