The Boston Celtics have been working to bring in at least one extra big body from the buyout market this week, patching up the holes in their front line in preparation for one last playoff run. Now it appears they've found a match: Ryan Hollins is headed to Boston, according to Comcast SportsNet New England.

Hollins played limited minutes off the bench for the Cleveland Cavaliers this season; he averaged 3.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 15.1 minutes per game. The Cavs bought him out earlier this week.

The Celtics are desperate for more bigs -- they've lost three this year to season-ending injuries (Jeff Green, Chris Wilcox and most recently Jermaine O'Neal). The C's have recovered from a February losing streak to win nine of their last 14 games. They now sit seventh in the Eastern Conference at 24-21.
