The team announced that it has signed Jared Sullinger, Fab Melo and Kris Joseph. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.
Sullinger was selected 21st overall out of Ohio State. He was named the 2011 Big Ten Freshman of the Year and quickly rose to stardom, becoming a consensus top five or top 10 pick in the process. But injury concerns caused him to drop all the way to the C's at No. 21, and Boston jumped at the opportunity to draft the talented 6-foot-9 forward.
Melo, drafted 22nd overall out of Syracuse, also comes with some risk, as he missed the entire NCAA Tournament with an academic suspension. The 7-footer, like Sullinger, boasts plenty of talent, though, forcing the Celtics to roll the dice. The Brazil native was the Big East Defensive Player of the Year as a sophomore.
Joseph is also a Syracuse product. The 6-foot-7 forward was selected in the second round (51st overall) after earning First Team All-Big East honors during his senior season.
