NEW YORK, Dec. 24, 2012 – The Boston Celtics today signed Sioux Falls Skyforce forward Jarvis Varnado for the sixth GATORADE Call-Up of the 2012-13 NBA Development League season.  Varnado joins more than 100 players with NBA D-League experience currently on NBA rosters.

Varnado (6-9, 210, Mississippi State) has appeared in 10 games for the Skyforce, averaging 14.0 points, 10.0 rebounds, 30.5 minutes and a league-leading 3.9 blocks.  Varnado finished with six double-doubles and recorded season-highs of 21 points and eight blocks on Nov. 30 at Springfield.  He tallied a season-high 16 rebounds at Austin on Dec. 22.  For his efforts, he was named NBA D-League Performer of the Week on Dec. 3.  

Originally selected by the Miami Heat in the second round (41st overall) of the 2010 NBA Draft, Varnado was a four-year contributor at Mississippi State where he was named the NABC Defensive Player of the Year (2010) and was a three-time SEC Defensive Player of the Year (2008, 2009, 2010).  Varnado finished his 141-game collegiate career as NCAA’s all-time leading shot blocker with 564 career blocks.  

Varnado is expected to join the Celtics today and be available on Dec. 25 when the team travels to face the Brooklyn Nets in a Christmas Day match-up at 12 p.m. ET on ESPN.
