Despite Fab Melo’s ridiculous 15/16/14 triple-double this weekend, the Boston Celtics decided to sign Jarvis Varnado, a 6-foot-9 shot blocker who became the NCAA’s top career shot blocker while at Mississippi State. Varnado, 24, is averaging 3.9 blocks per game in the D-League this season, which probably means the Celtics are admitting, “Yeah, son dude, our interior defense sucks.”
Varnado isn’t a polished center by any means, but he should help Boston’s interior defense, which certainly could use some assistance.
