“I haven’t seen him in action like 5-on-5, but this kid would be a tremendous asset for the Celtics,” said Scal. “He’s strong and big and would take so much pressure off guys like Garnett. He’s athletic and pretty intelligent, and would fit in pretty well.”
“He’s from New Zealand, a freak athlete. I always talk about Omer Asik and he’s similar to that; big and strong, and with guys like Garnett and Doc Rivers teaching him, this guy would be very valuable for the Celtics.
“If you add a guy like this, it makes the Celtics a different team. They no longer have rebounding issues and you can move Garnett to the four,” said Scalabrine. “People think the Celtics have big problems — I don’t see it like that. I think they have a couple issues to resolve.”
