Celtics sign 6-11 center Daniel Ochefu


The Celtics have signed center Daniel Ochefu, a 6-11 center, who played 19 games with the Wizards as a rookie last season.

Ochefu, cut by the Wizards in camp, averaged 1.3 points and 1.2 rebounds for Washington in totaling just 75 minutes in his first season out of Villanova.

With the injury to Celtics big man Aron Baynes, who hyperextended his left knee in a preseason game against the Philadelphia 76ers earlier this week, Ochefu was perhaps signed because of the uncertainty over Baynes' status.

Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports that Ochefu is likely ticketed for the Celtics' G-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws.
