According to Boston.com, the Boston Celtics have signed power forward Shelden Williams to what is a one-year deal. The source reports that he is scheduled to make about $1M.

Williams is known for being one of the stars at Duke, then being a top-five pick in the 2006 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks. He has been struggling, though, but probably with the Celtics he may be much more improved with his 6'9" 250-pound frame.

He also has a lot of time to improve with his age of 25 years old.

Williams is also married to the WNBA superstar Candace Parker.

Although Williams has signed with the C's, it does not affect the chance of them signing Glen "Big Baby" Davis. With Williams, he can be a good contributor off the bench during the upcoming 2009-10 season.

Let's see what Shelden Williams has to prove with the 2007-08 NBA Champions.
