Jason Terry's arrival will give Doc Rivers plenty of options off the bench.

The Boston Celtics aren't sitting on the sidelines watching as NBA free agency heats up. 

Having already locked up veteran Kevin Garnett, the Celtics added a new face to next year's roster on Tuesday when they signed veteran combo guard Jason Terry to a three-year deal for just over $15 million.

Terry is a 13-year veteran who has been used effectively as a shooting guard, point guard and sixth man throughout his career.

Regardless of Allen's eventual whereabouts, adding Terry is a move made with only one goal in mind.

Winning the NBA Championship.

Terry is 34 years old. He's not going to blossom into a better player, discover a new basketball-related skill or be a building block for a bright future in Boston. Unless, of course, that future is now.

What does Terry bring to Boston, and how will it impact next season's mission, which is not just to return to the Finals, but to win them?
