Celtics reach one-year deal to bring back Keyon Dooling


Keyon Dooling will be back in Boston.

Dooling didn’t see a ton of court time with the Celtics last year and may see less on a much deeper team, but for one year at the veteran’s minimum this is a good deal for Boston.

Dooling’s agent confirmed the news to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com.

“He’s excited to be back,” said Dooling’s agent, Kenge Stevenson. “He loves Doc (Rivers), his teammates. It’s a good situation for him.”

Dooling is another good defender the Celtics can roll out. However, with Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley starting, then Jason Terry and Courtney Lee coming in behind them, Dooling is not going to play a lot of minutes. So, don’t draft him onto your fantasy team.

But it’s a nice bit of veteran depth for a win-now Boston team.
