Celtics extend Kristaps Porzingis

The Boston Celtics have agreed to a contract extension with center/forward Kristaps Porzingis.

Originally selected by New York with the fourth overall pick of the 2015 NBA Draft, Porzingis, 27, has appeared in 402 career games and has averaged 19.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.8 blocks in 31.1 minutes per game.

The seven-year NBA veteran joins the Celtics after stints at New York (2015-19), Dallas (2019-22), and Washington (2022-23).  

Porzingis was named to the 2018 NBA All-Star Game and was selected to the NBA All-Rookie First Team with the Knicks in 2015-16.

He became one of five players in league history to record at least 4,000 points, 1,500 rebounds, 400 made three-pointers, and 400 blocks before his 25th birthday (LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Tracy McGrady, Karl-Anthony Towns).
