Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

Former Portland Trail Blazers forward Shavlik Randolph has signed a 10-day contract with the Boston Celtics.

Former Portland Trail Blazers forward Shavlik Randolph has signed a 10-day contract with the Boston Celtics after receiving his letter of clearance from the Chinese Basketball Association this week.

Randolph, 28, spent the 2012-13 season with the Foshan Long Lions, where he averaged 32.0 points and 14.6 rebounds per game.

"It was a good season for me, maybe the best I've played," Randolph told Blazersedge on Thursday. "I just wish we had won a few more games and made the playoffs."

Randolph hasn't played in an NBA game since 2010 but he went to training camp with the Miami Heat in 2011 and the Washington Wizards in 2012. It's been a pretty wild ride in recent years and he's understandably excited to get another NBA call.

"It feels good to get back in it," he said. "I'm ready."

More from Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe here.

"To be able to say I played for the Boston Celtics, whether it's 10 days, one day, however long it's something that I will carry for the rest of my life," he told the Globe following the team's shootaround. "It's a very pleasant surprise to come back to. I'm very honored and privileged for this opportunity."

Said president of basketball operations Danny Ainge: "We just think Shavlik knows how to play, plays hard, has experience and yet is still fresh enough and young enough. I've always liked the way Shavlik has played."

Here's an interview with Randolph from last year.
