The Celtics announced Sunday that they have signed 2013 first round draft pick Kelly Olynyk.

Olynyk, a 7’0” forward, was drafted 13th overall by the Celtics with the pick acquired from the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for Lucas Nogueira and two future second round draft picks on the night of the NBA Draft. He helped Gonzaga to a 32-3 overall record this past season, averaging 17.8 points, 7.3 rebounds, and shooting 62.9-percent from the field.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
