Good move for Celts, they suck at rebounding

Tristan is signed to Klutch? Wow that’s nuts but good fit for the Celtics. Wonder if they still go after Giles

Great fit for what they need
Didn't like the Coby White pick. Preferred Rui. Now go out and make me look stupid Coby!

Great pickup for us after losing Kanter.

Wow. Nice pickup. Was hoping for Baynes to come back but this TT definitely helps off the bench.

Good move - surprised Ainge signed a klutch client

Edit: bad deal, full MLE? Rich Paul killing it

Yes. We need a guy like that who plays with toughness and attitude.

This **** terrorized the Celtics over the years. Good signing. I am surprised a Lebron James player signed with the Celtics though. Is there something wrong with his health? :)

He'd be a good minimum level or taxpayer MLE signing, but full MLE for him is a waste. Guy doesn't do anything at a high level except rebounding. His defensive metrics blow, and his offensive efficiency is awful for a center.

I guess the Vets Min was too little for him.

So Serge is down to MLE with Clippers, Minimum with Nets and big pay day with Raptors?
