C's formally announce Babb deal

The Boston Celtics formally announced the signing of rookie Chris Babb to a second 10-day contract on Tuesday.

Babb revealed after Sunday's game that he had been asked to stick around with his initial pact set to expire. The new deal will keep Babb here for at least six more games as the Celtics navigate a busy stretch that features two back-to-backs.

Babb's new deal runs through March 20, when the team will have to decide whether to sign him for the rest of the season (and keep him a part of the organization through the summer).
