Shaquille O’Neal is close to signing a contract with the Boston Celtics. It’s expected that he’ll sign for the league minimum, $1.4MM. The length of the deal is unknown, but Shaq has been looking for a 2-year deal.
He was also talking to the Atlanta Hawks, but he’d be closer to winning a championship with Boston.
This could be a great move for Boston, as their main competition will be from the Miami Heat; the Heat lack a presence at center and would have a problem defending Shaq.
