Celtics sign veteran F/C Wilcox

WALTHAM -- The Celtics have signed veteran big man Chris Wilcox to a one-year deal. The nine-year veteran, taken with the eighth pick of the 2002 draft by the Clippers, played 57 games (29 starts) for the Pistons last year, averaging 7.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 0.3 blocks and 0.5 steals in 17.5 minutes per game. He shot 58.1 percent from the floor in 2010-11, and has made 53.2 percent of his attempted shots in his career.

"They had a lot of great guys here," Wilcox said. "My agent called me and said are you interested? This is my first chance of playing for a team of this caliber so I was willing to take this opportunity and come to Boston." 

The 6-foot-10 29-year-old can play both forward and center. "At this point in my career I just want to win," he said.

Mayo fined $25,000 for hit on Orlovsky

FOXBORO -- According to multiple reports, citing a league spokesperson, Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo was fined $25,000 for a fourth-quarter hit on Colts quarterback Dan Orlovsky in New England's 31-24 win last Sunday. Though Mayo was not flagged on the play, he was hit with the fine for a hit that was deemed to be in "the head and neck area."

Mayo has not incurred a single penalty during the season. Even so, with the NFL cracking down on helmet-to-helmet hits and emphasizing quarterback safety, the 25-year-old linebacker received his fine.

Stephen A. on M&M: 'Rajon will get over it'

Radio host Stephen A. Smith joined the Mut & Merloni show Friday to discuss the big news in the NBA from the past couple of days.

Smith offered his view of the Chris Paul trade that was stopped by NBA commissioner David Stern.

"What [Stern] is saying about basketball decisions, he's alluding to the ability to sell the team and get the highest price possible for it," Smith said. "If you have Chris Paul as opposed to these guys, no, it doesn't make them a better team having Chris Paul as opposed to those guys. … The problem is, are they as marketable? Chris Paul is box office. And if you're trying to sell this franchise to a prospective owner, that prospective owner may want a marquee guy so that he can then make the decision as to whether or not he's going to keep Chris Paul in New Orleans or whether he's going to allow him to move on to another city.

"That's why David Stern stepped in and made the move that he...
