Citing sources, Hoopsworld reported that the Celtics beat out the Cleveland Cavaliers and several foreign teams for Wafer’s services.
Wafer, 25, is well-traveled. After being drafted in the second round of the 2005 draft by the Lakers, he bounced to the Clippers, Nuggets, Blazers and Rockets. He signed a deal last August to play with Olympiacos in the Greek Euroleague, but was waived in December.
His strengths since his days at Florida State have been his size (6-feet-5-inches) and his scoring ability. Staying power has been an issue however. The Celtics had shown interest in bringing back Eddie House, but the veteran guard signed a two-year deal with the Miami Heat. Boston is still in the market for a backup big man.
