Celtics Sign Kelly Olynyk

The Celtics announced that they have signed first-round pick Kelly Olynyk.  The 7'0" forward was the 13th overall pick in the 2013 draft.

Olynyk was a consensus All-American and the West Coast Conference Player of the Year during the 2012-13 season for Gonzaza. He averaged 17.8 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 26.4 minutes per game, while finishing third in the nation in field goal shooting at 62.9%.  

Olynyk’s draft rights were acquired from Dallas in exchange for the draft rights to Lucas Nogueira and two future second round draft picks.  If C's go to 120% of the rookie scale, Olynyk will earn $2MM in his first year.
