Decent, now resign Theis and whatever happens, happens.
Good assessment:

Celtics fans: DANNY, GET STEVEN ADAMS!
Danny Ainge: How about Steven Adams's 'Stache Brother AND French Steven Adams?

This belongs here also.

My theory is that we sign these Euro big men every couple of years so that Austin Ainge can justify his "business trips" to France, Germany, Spain, etc.

Mostly offensive highlights. How's his defense?

Also, on a side note, the awful autotune trend that has taken over US pop radio I see has spilled into Europe, as judging by the abysmal song playing in this video. Insert barfing emoji here.

pick n roll time with him !
Big diff with Theis : he knows how to roll and is 10 times more mobile then Theis.
But Theis is also more NBA ready physically, so they'll prob share back up time C

After watching 6 minutes of highlights, it’s clear we have French Tim Duncan on our hands. The only question now is what polish to use for the rings.

How much can we pay Theis? Can we overpay him? We probably will never be in the game for a max free agent again given Kemba contact and need to pay Brown and Tatum. Besides, FA crop next year is pretty bad. Hayward, if he opts out will likely be one of premier ones. Therefore, we either need to trade Hayward this year or build up enough salary (not counting Tatum/Smart/Brown) so we can be a player at the deadline to get a difference maker in front court.
sam_I_am »2017:Kyrie isn't much of an upgrade over IT and he is **** crazy. Demands to be traded after 3 finals passing on supermax to go to Knicks. More talent around than IT did 2 yrs ago, no playoffs until Lebron came.Kyrie cant hold leads w/o Lebron.

Seems to be a much better finisher. And good on defense.

I haven't seen his play. But his career is 6 Rebs (2 Offensive), in 20 mins, and about 1 Block.
