The Boston Celtics have signed Jonathan Gibson, Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports writes. The point guard spent the majority of the year in China but will join a C’s team that he played for briefly last season.

In just four games for Boston in 2017-18, Gibson averaged 8.5 points per contest. He’ll provide backcourt insurance for the Celtics this time around as the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference prepares for the upcoming postseason.

Gibson originally went undrafted in 2010 and has bounced around China and Europe ever since. In 2016-17, he played 13 games for the Dallas Mavericks.

The addition of Gibson in the final days of the season will push the Celtics slightly deeper into the luxury tax.
