Darius Garland Tristan Thompson

The Boston Celtics have agreed to sign Tristan Thompson, his agent told Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes.

For the first time in his National Basketball Association career, Tristan Thompson is on the move and will join a different team when the season starts.

Per the Athletic's Joe Vardon, Thompson's deal is for two years and $19 million - likely Boston's full non-taxpayer mid-level exception.

With Thompson headed to the Boston Celtics, Kevin Love sent a heartfelt message to Thompson on social media.

At the same time, Tristan Thompson continued to reprise his role on the Cavaliers as the enforcer on both ends of the floor. He'll factor into the "big man" spot in the Celtics rotation with Daniel Theis and Robert Williams.

At 29 years old, Thompson is coming off a career year, when he averaged a career-high 12 points per game to go along with 10.1 rebounds.

But he also shot just 51% on 2-pointers, his lowest mark since 2013-14, while his 1.8 turnovers per game were a career high. He was a part of their championship run in 2016.
