BOSTON, MA – The Boston Celtics have signed guard Jonathan Gibson, the team announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Gibson, 31, returns to Boston after playing in four games for the Celtics in 2017-18. He averaged 8.5 points on 60.9% shooting (50.0% 3-PT), including an 18-point performance (8-13 FG) in the team’s regular-season finale against Brooklyn on April 11. Gibson (6-2, 185 lbs.) has played in 21 career NBA games with Dallas and Boston, recording 6.7 points (41.5% FG, 36.8% 3-PT), 1.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists.

The California native joins the Celtics having already played in 44 games (14 starts) for the Qingdao Double Star Eagles of the Chinese Basketball Association in 2018-19, where he produced 33.1 points (46.1% FG, 39.0% 3-PT, 86.5% FT), 6.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists. His 33.1-point scoring mark ranks eighth in the CBA.

A four-year New Mexico State University product from 2006-07 to 2009-10, Gibson will wear No. 8 for the Celtics.

i mean can Gibson play in the playoffs, the depth chart to me is still Irving / Smart / Terry for pg and Smart / Brown, and at times Gordon plays a bit of SG

I think our bigs are kinda thin, unless we have faith and confidence in theis during the playoffs.

How bad is that injury? This signing gets me worried due to that possibility.

Gibson was arguably the spark that sent Boston rolling into the playoffs last year. It would be stupid not to go back to that well.

To be eligible for the postseason, a player has to be on the team's roster at least one regular season game and can't have been on the roster of any other NBA team after March 1. So we are talking about guys like Gibson who have been overseas, or guys who were waived by an NBA over a month ago and who were not picked up even for a 10-day contract.

Net, we couldn't get anybody you would want to see on the court before the Celtics' current end-of-bench players. We have Horford, Baynes, Theis, Timelord, Mook, even Guerschon who should see time before some non-NBA scrub - who would also have to learn how the Cs play as a team. I think we would see an awful lot of smallball lineups before going there.

and who is this pf/center the celtics could sign that would beat out horford, baynes, theis, and TL for playing time?

Who is Gibson beating out? We should've just kept Monroe.
