This seems like he would be the ideal big man off the bench for our team, no?  He didn't get a lot of burn last season and I wasn't paying much attention to him.  Can anybody attest if he can still play emergency minutes as a floor stretching 7 foot center?  I think I'd surely take him over Smith and Robinson.  Please merge if another thread already out there.

Interesting that they couldn't find a way to deal him or Monroe to stay under the tax.

He's nothing like KO, much tougher, decent post game, not known for his 3-pointer like KO even if it's within his range.

Hawes doesn't thrill me and hard to see what he adds over Baynes.

Hawes is a pick and pop guy who has limited skills. Yes, the poor man's Olynyk seems accurate.

Why not Jordan Hill on a minimum?

Always need at least one man-bun on the team. But can he set a pick like Kelly? Oubre wants to know.


Hey Jaylen. I lost 519 Tommy Points betting on you guys and lost

Jordan Hill who managed all of 48 minutes on the Wolves last year? No thanks.

Did you miss the memo about how Ainge values "character" ::).

Oh for the days of yore when rosters across the league contained nary a man-bun.  Good times.  I remember it well.

As for Hawes, dude looks like the Australian guy on TMZ who doesn't shower.  Charlie, right?

Leon Powe would still help. Does anyone has his phone number?
