If the Celtics clear Jabari Bird from the roster as expected, I’m open to bringing in Kanter who can help the 2nd unit scoring.
This blurb from ESPN sums up his play:
Kanter is averaging 14.4 points and 11 rebounds in 26.5 minutes per game but has struggled at times on defense. Entering play Friday, he ranked 60th out of 60 qualifying centers in ESPN’s defensive real plus-minus.
He’s squawked a lot about lack of playing time in NY and I’m not sure the Celtics can give him more than 10-12 minutes a night.
