Boston Celtics draft pick Colton Iverson signed a one-year deal with Besiktas of the Turkish League, a source with knowledge of the situation told MassLive.com early Friday morning.
The team issued a press release announcing the Iverson signing last week but nothing was official at that time.
The Celtics liked Iverson enough to spend cash to acquire his rights on draft night, but did not have a roster spot to keep the 7-footer. The team has 15 players under contract, the league maximum, even after waiving power forward Shavlik Randolph on Thursday.
