He'll bruise down low with the best of them, get under people's skins, and most importantly, bring down some freaking boards. Good signing. Welcome to Beantown, Enes!

I guess we made the most out of the situation. Horford was irreplaceable. Make do with what we have. Score 200 points per game!

Well, its like Red Auerbach probably said: "Defense is irrelevant, just score double the points". Welcome to Boston, Kanter!

I like it, we're going to go with a 1-pass offence by the looks of it. Increase efficiency by scoring more baskets with fewer passes

Wow! Nice pickup especially considering Boston had limited funds. Good news. I’m surprised he didn’t get more elsewhere.

One of the best rebounders in the league. Plays with heart. Played really hurt in the playoffs last year with Portland and was starting for them.

Yup. Threes, FTs, and Shots at the Rim. Less midrange. More putbacks and layups.

Love it for the price. 2 years, 10m. Now we can sign Theis to a 2 year 10 m deal. Maybe get a vet min contract with what is left over.

Not a big fan of his. Too bad, now I need to cheer for him. Oh well, I learned to route for Marcus Morris, so I guess I can learn to route for Kanter as well.

I like it. We needed size. Him and Robert Williams will be a good combo.

He's played at least 67 games for the past 4 years, so he's pretty durable. Might be the best rebounder we've had in a while, too.

No D. No divas. No dicks. No defense.

Marcus Smart will save us all though.
