Yeah I’m kind of hopping aboard this Noah train. Al Horford would be so upset if we won with his college teammate lol.

I still don't don't understand their cap situation. I though by doing a sign and trade with Rozier they opened a bi annual of 9.2? So did they just use that on Kanter or did they only make the mini mid?

No for more then the min heck no, but hey why not take a flyer on a guy coming from a team who has had player development issues.


He needs another year or two in the weight room..

Is he 100% healthy? I dont care he'd be better than 99% of todays bigs.

Siakam and Ibaka completely shut down his entire offensive game, even though he has 100lbs on them by the looks of it.


Do you think Cousins will recover from the achilles injury? Because that doesn't happen with a pre-injury Cousins.

If we operate as an under the cap team, we don't get to use any exceptions other than the Room Exception, which is the dollar amount Kanter agreed to. There may be a way to swing it so we can operate over the cap, still give Kanter that money and have room left to sign (or trade for) another big first. Zoya came up with it and we're hashing out details in this thread:

Ya'll picking the wrong Noah. Vonleh is the one we should go for. Idk if we could afford him, but I like the potential there..only 23.

It was awkward watching him in the finals, he would drop his shoulder, create no space, hit a couple of tough layups early and then mostly disappear.

He had a good season last season. And he is best served coming off the bench, which he would be behind Kanter, his former teammate from last season.

Nope. Other moves were needed for that to be true, such as turning Irving's or Horford's departures into trades. As matters stand we haven't traded away nearly enough salary to take Kemba back in a trade, and hence are expected to sign him into cap room.

Yeah I like Vonleh a lot but feel like he gets more than the min.

I saw it there. Can’t believe he’s not being talked about. I always liked his game. Anyone we get has a decent chance to earn a starting spot.

Zaza should sign a bunch of 10-days with teams that have the Lakers as an upcoming game. Would be a legendary intimidation tactic

Would be good to get a stretch 4 like Jerebko. I don't trust Grant Williams long ball.

Not really sure I want DeMarcus based on his attitude. But if that's what is available, gotta at least try it.

Seems like we should just get an expirmental big.

Maybe there is soemone undrafted that can be Whiteside. Maybe that's what we're already doing with Taco Fall.

We have wayyyyyyyyyyyyy too many guards and wings. And we have some that "can play PF" players that we're sliding there. Just go with someone with upside and hope you get lucky.

We're not looking to win a ring this year so there's no point in trying to figure who is the best player we can have as the 12th man on the bench.

IMO, unless there is a trade, I think they have a 10 man rotation penciled in at this point. If they get a big, he's going to need to be willing to mentor and not play for games at a time.

Personally, I think there is equally a need for another wing scorer but that player would need to be willing to do the same, unless team plans to continue to block Ojeleye or not provide an avenue for Langford or Edwards to get minutes early. Jared Dudley is probably the only viable option there, though he does not qualify as a scorer. And there have been rumors of his interest in signing here.

In considering Cousins (who I think still gets a better than minimum deal), the good thing is at a minimum deal, just cutting him if he's a jerk is not a problem.
Of the things I like about Robert Williams, my favorite thing is that he spreads his arms when he retreats on defense.

Noah or Cousins, we need some attitude/strength down low! something we haven't had since KG and Perk. This squad is going to trump last years and surprise a lot of the doubters

Would be a perfect fit. He is able to play with Kanter as well if needed. Vonleh is the no brainer option but I don't think he is on the Celtics radar and also I am not sure he would settle for the amount of money the Celtics can offer him. He is a local guy and said he wants to stay in the Northeast.
