Former Boston Celtics champion and fan-favorite big man Brian Scalabrine has been signed by his current employer NBC Sports Boston to a multi-year extension, per the Boston Globe’s Chad Finn.

While no word on his contract details is circulating in official capacity, Finn is hearing from multiple sources that White Mamba — as Scalabrine was sometimes called as a player — inked a deal for five more years with the New England sports news outlet as a broadcaster. Part of the Celtics 2008 title team, the USC product has stepped into the giant shoes of Celtics icon Tommy Heinsohn following his passing last year, joining Abby Chin as a study analyst.

Scalabrine will continue to compliment the game calling of longtime Celtics broadcaster Mike Gorman.
