The Boston Celtics like for their players to show a lot of emotion. That won’t be a problem for newly signed bigman Ryan Hollins. Hollins was signed after his contract was bought out by the Cleveland Cavaliers. He inked a one-year deal with the Celtics.
With the Cavs, Hollins averaged 3.7 points, 2.3 rebounds and 0.5 blocks in 15.1 minutes per game. His best season came in 2009-10 when he averaged 6.1 points and 2.9 rebounds while with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Celtics are desperate for bigmen, which will likely lead Hollins to playing a role immediately. Boston is without Jermaine O’Neal and Chris Wilcox due to a wrist injury and a heart ailment, respectively.
While Hollins is unlikely to play a big role in Boston, he should give the Celtics 5-10 quality minutes a night … with a lot of emotion.
