The Boston Celtics have signed forward Troy Murphy and will sign swingman Sasha Pavlovic for the rest of the season, as they continue to add depth and talent for the stretch run of the regular season and postseason.
Murphy, whose contract with Golden State was bought out soon after being traded from New Jersey, played in only 18 games with the Nets and hasn't played since January 7. He's been in-demand with several teams in contention, including Miami, looking for a cheap way to bolster their frontcourt.
Pavlovic played in 14 games with New Orleans and Dallas this year, and will back up Ray Allen and Paul Pierce.

Vet minimum so no risk for the Pistons. If McGrady has something left and the Pistons struggle, they can move him at the deadline for a draft pick or a young player. If he sucks, they cut him and pay him the remainder of the minimum.
