BOSTON (AP) The Celtics signed free agent center Greg Monroe in their lone move at the trade deadline on Thursday.

He was originally selected by the Detroit Pistons with the seventh overall pick in the 2010 draft.

Monroe averaged at least 15 points in five consecutive seasons from 2011-12 to 2015-16.
