WCS- rim runner. Finishes on lobs. Quality interior defender. Average rebounder. Hasn't been a floor spacer in the league yet, although I know he is capable.

Cousins- pre injury he is a max player. 25/12/5. Dominates when focused. Capable defensively but not always engaged. Has a bad rep and can be a baby. IMO will get close to being dominate this season. Needs a good oppt.

Looney- good defender. Undersized. Not all that good. More of a 3/4 that GS morphed into their Center.

Kanter- Good post scorer and excellent rebounder. Spaces the floor a bit. Below average defense.

Noel- Injury prone. Basically a worse version of WCS.

There are other options, but on a short term deal I'd be cool with Boogie because there's still a realistic chance he could be an All Star and a bargain.

How do we get Boogie out of Golden State? No way he comes on the room exception.

I am not happy with how nba does cap. We sign one player, because we are under cap, and all the capped out teams are just doling our dash an exceptions. Ridiculous.

Depends on if GS wants Boogie back. Going to be an interesting year for them with KD gone (and injured) and Klay out. I think Boogie would like to stay because he is a loyal guy, but if Boston is aggressive in their pursuit they could ultimately work out some sort of S/T for Boogie. Perhaps a Theis S/T.


You hearing anything about the Cs targeting him? Report yesterday said no one wants him. Dude feels like a major red flag.

I had no faith in Ainge to trade for a good center or create capspace to sign one in free agency so I voted for the worst possible options in Theis and Kanter and Ainge delivered.

Well we got all 3 the board voted on. So that says something
We always talk about there’s A-to-Z… really, there’s A-to-G or -E,’” Ainge told Celtics.com of a team’s typical offseason agenda. “This year, there’s definitely A-to-Z.” : danny ainge

Ainge based his decision on the poll results. This is on us.
