The Celtics made a move to bolster their depth.

Boston agreed to sign Blake Griffin to a one-year, fully guaranteed deal, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Friday, citing league sources.

With both Robert Williams and Danilo Gallinari out to begin the 2022-23 NBA season, the Celtics were left shorthanded and in need of some help. Griffin certainly will provide a nice boost to the C’s.

The 33-year-old spent the last two seasons with the Brooklyn Nets, where he averaged 18.5 minutes per game. Griffin shot 42.5% from the field and 26.2% from beyond the arc for the 2021-22 campaign, while averaging 6.4 points, 1.9 assists and 4.1 rebounds.

The Celtics will need to waive someone in order to make room for Griffin, but there’s been no word about who that might be.
