Celtics exercise option on F Sullinger
Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Boston Celtics have exercised a third year contract option on forward Jared Sullinger for the 2014-15 season.
A 6-foot-9 forward out of Ohio State, Sullinger averaged 6.0 points and 5.9 rebounds per game as a rookie in 45 games last season. Sullinger made five starts, but missed the final 37 games of the season after undergoing lumbar disc surgery.
Sullinger was suspended for Wednesday's season opener against Toronto for domestic violence charges, which were dropped. He is expected to make his season debut when Boston hosts Milwaukee on Friday.
