The Celtics will sign Ryan Hollins.

Hollins was waived this week by the Cavaliers.

To create a roster spot for Hollins, the Celtics will waive Chris Wilcox who is out for the remainder of the season.

Danny Ainge said Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce urged him this summer to sign Hollins.

"They really liked his game and the way he could play with them," Ainge said. "I think he would fit in well with what we do."
