Who could be heading back stateside?

The Celtics announced on Tuesday morning that they have signed Jonathan Gibson, who played four games for the team at the end of last season,
Gibson just completed another successful year in China where he averaged 33.1 points per game. He will provide some emergency depth for the Celtics who will be without Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum, Gordon Hayward, Marcus Morrris, Aron Baynes and Al Horford on Tuesday. Gibson is eligible for a playoff roster spot as long as the Celtics choose to retain him.

Jonathan Gibson has signed with China's Qingdao Eagles.
Gibson played in only four games with the Celtics last season. He'll look to put up big numbers overseas and return to the league when the CBA season ends.

Jonathan Gibson scored 18 points in Wednesday's season finale, shooting 8-for-13 with a pair of triples in 25 minutes.
This was just Gibson's fourth game with the Celtics and the second-highest scoring outing in his 21-game career. He put up gaudy numbers in China but is unlikely to see much run in the postseason barring even more injuries. Gibson had two nice scoring games in this short stint but still didn't crack the top-350 in per-game value.

Jonathan Gibson hit three triples in nine minutes in his first game as a member of the Celtics in Friday's win over the Bulls.
Gibson added a rebound and two assists to his nine points. Fresh out of the CBA, it's clear that he can get hot in a hurry. He'll be a source of depth scoring for the Celtics and might get some extended run if they rest more players on the final night of the season. For the most part, Gibson can be completely ignored but he's a name worth sticking in the very back of your mind just in case.

Jonathan Gibson will sign with the Boston Celtics for the rest of the season.
This is just in response to the Kyrie Irving news. The Celtics needed another guard for depth purposes. Gibson put up over 33 points per game in China this season and had a brief stint in Dallas last year. Gibson will only see action if Boston decides to rests players in the final few games.
