The two join Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce as the Celtics try to end their 21-year championship drought.
Pollard and House ate lunch with coach Doc Rivers before meeting the media Thursday.
``Getting Kevin Garnett has been kind of a big deal, and now that us two are here, you really have a chance,'' joked Pollard, who appeared in 24 games with Cleveland last season, averaging 1.0 points and 1.3 rebounds. ``I'm excited to be the cornerstone of this team.''
Pollard was drafted by the Detroit Pistons with the 19th overall pick in 1997. The 6-foot-11, 273-pounder has career averages of 4.5 points and 4.8 rebounds.
House played for the New Jersey Nets last season and averaged 8.4 points. He shot close to 43 percent from 3-point range last season.
