It's clear Perkins isn't the only one enthralled by Edwards' potential. The Celtics reportedly agreed to terms on a four-year deal with the sharpshooting rookie on Friday.

If Perkins were in C's general manager Danny Ainge's shoes, 7-foot-7 phenom Tacko Fall would be next rookie in line for a deal. Perk has been aboard the Tacko-mania train ever since the Celtics signed the UCF product to an Exhibit 10 contract earlier this summer.
