Celtics sign Harangody

WALTHAM -- Before the start of the Shaquille O'Neal press conference Tuesday, Doc Rivers announced that the Celtics signed second-round pick Luke Harangody to a two-year contract. The Notre Dame alum was 52nd pick of the 2010 draft. He impressed many during the Summer League in Orlando, where he led the Celtics for the week with 16.8 points per game while shooting 47.1% from the floor and 50.0% on 3-point attempts.

 

With Harangody now signed, the Celtics now have 15 players on the roster, which is the maximum. That number could be trimmed to 14, though, as Rasheed Wallace is expected to retire.

Shaq on D&H: 'I'll beat you in whatever it is'

New Celtic Shaquille O'Neal joined the Dale & Holley show Tuesday morning, shortly after wrapping up his introductory press conference at the Celtics' Waltham practice facility. "I've done all of that [individual accomplishments]," he said. "I'm at the top of all of that. That's really no concern for me. It's all about winning now. Right now, it's all about the hardware at the end of the year."

 

Added O'Neal: "I've been a winner my whole career. I wanted to play my last two years for a franchise that's known for winning, a franchise that's rich in the tradition of winning."

 

Shaq confirmed that he gave Glen "Big Baby" Davis and Paul "The Truth" Pierce their nicknames. "Every new player in the league, I've given them their name," he insisted.

 

Responding to a question about what kind of shape he's in, Shaq answered, "Good enough to...

Shaq says he'll do 'whatever [Celtics] need'

WALTHAM — Sporting a bow tie and a gray pinstripe suit, Shaquille O’Neal sat beside Celtics coach Doc Rivers for his introductory press conference on Wednesday. As forward and new teammate Kevin Garnett and Luke Harangody overlooked the event from a higher level at the Celtics’ practice facility, the center fielded questions and held up his No. 36 jersey as he became the first player in franchise history to wear the number.

 

“I’m not sure what they’ll call him yet — the Leprechaun, the Green Monster — I’ve heard all these different things,” Rivers said. “The bottom line is we’re looking at Shaq as another piece of the puzzle.”

 

O'Neal said he would be more than willing to come off the bench as a reserve if that's what it took to fit in with his new team.

 

“Sometimes in order to win, you have to sacrifice,” said...
