The Boston Celtics made the signing of point guard Carlos Arroyo official Sunday. Here's the full release from the team:
The Boston Celtics announced today that they have signed guard Carlos Arroyo. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Arroyo, a 6’2” guard, appeared in 49 games this season for the Miami Heat including 42 starts, averaging 5.6 points, 1.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game. He also is shooting a career-high 43.8% from three-point range. In his 42 starts he has averaged 6.4 points, 2.2 assists and has shot 45.9% from beyond the arc. In his ninth NBA season, Arroyo owns career averages of 6.7 points and 3.1 assists per game. He posted a season-high of 18 points at Milwaukee on December 6.
The deal, of course, is for the pro-rated veteran's minimum, the most the over-the-cap Celtics can offer any player.
