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.

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...
