Celtics sign free agent Gugliotta

Boston, MA (Sports Network) – The Boston Celtics Monday signed free agent
forward Tom Gugliotta. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not
disclosed.

Gugliotta split time last season with Phoenix and Utah and averaged 2.9 points
and 3,4 rebounds in 55 games. He was traded by the Suns to the Jazz along with
a first-round pick in February in exchange for Keon Clark and Ben Handlogten.

“We’re getting a very versatile player,” said executive director of basketball
operations Danny Ainge, who coached Gugliotta in Phoenix. “Along with his
versatility, I think his physical and mental toughness are his greatest
assets.”

The 34-year-old Gugliotta has also enjoyed stints with Washington, Golden
State and Minnesota. In 716 career NBA contests, he has averaged 13.5 points
and 7.5 boards per outing.
