The Boston Celtics have reached an agreement with Jae Crowder to re-sign the restricted free agent to a five-year, $35 million contract, according to RealGM's Shams Charania.
Crowder, 25, who was one of the Celtics' top offseason signing priorities, averaged 9.5 points and 4.6 rebounds per game with Boston during the 2014–15 season.
Crowder started for the Celtics during Game 4 of the team's first-round playoff series against the Cavaliers, who eventually won the Eastern Conerence. He left what would be the last game of the Celtics' season with an ACL sprain, but ultimately avoided surgery.
