Twelve-year NBA veteran Keyon Dooling has decided to retire. The Celtics waived the veteran guard on Thursday, and according to his representatives he's going to call it a career:

"Keyon has decided that he has given the NBA 12 good years and that it's time to pursue other interests and spend more time with his family. He will never forget his time in Boston with the Celtics."

Dooling played for six NBA teams in his career, including the Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, Orlando Magic, New Jersey Nets, Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics. He was the 10th overall pick in the 2000 NBA Draft by the Orlando Magic after two seasons at Missouri. Dooling averaged 7.0 points per game for his career, adding 2.2 assists and 1.3 rebounds.
