Report: Jermaine O'Neal shipping up to Boston

Posted by Royce Young

Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Jermaine O'Neal, most recently of the Miami Heat, will sign with Boston .

O'Neal is a 13-year veteran that averaged 13.6 points per game and 6.9 rebounds per game last season in Miami. He'll add a lot of frontcourt strength to the Celtics, who need help after Rasheed Wallace announced his retirement. Currently, O'Neal will team with Glen Davis, Kendrick Perkins and Kevin Garnett on the front lines for Boston.

O'Neal is a former All-Star that's most known for his interior defense and shot-blocking, though he's never been a bad offensive player by any means. Plus, he's a little on the rugged side, so he'll likely fit right in to Doc Rivers' physical defensive system as an enforcer.

Terms of the deal haven't been released yet.
