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.

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?
