There has been some buzz that the Celtics are looking at adding another big man, given the uncertainty of Al Horford's early-season availability. Robert Williams' recent knee soreness likely factors in here as well.

Hilarious. Season hasn't even started and this team is already in hospital mode.

Wonder if they're bringing back Mathews or if they've got someone else in mind. Harry Giles?

SF/SG- Tatum, Brown, Hayward, Smart, Semi, Clark
PG- Irving, Rozier, Larkin

Giles makes the most sense with Al and Rob ailing. If anything happens to those two then the C's depth is gone.

The Celtics are waiving forward Jabari Parker, according to a league source.

Good to see Robert Williams is already in good form. Already hurt with knee issue.

Mods, this is another in a long list of recent trolling/baiting by PAOBoston. Can this be addressed? I don't mind people disagreeing or good debate, but this is clearly not that.

"Who, specifically, the Celtics would add is unclear, but the most logical possibility is Harry Giles, a fourth-year big man who was waived by the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday."

My vote is Stanley Johnson unless picked up by someone already. He is a big strong athletic wing. Just hasnít met expectations.

Is it not accurate though? Heís hurt again. Itís hard to rely on this player considering how high their expectations are for him. Itís very frustrating, especially considering they extended him long term.

I still think they should deal Fernando for a 2nd rounder and sign Kornet.

I'm a little surprised by this, even though it has been reported as a possibility all summer. For a team whose biggest question is the 4 spot to jettison a guy who seems like instant offense they must have been pretty unimpressed with something about him.

"Who, specifically, the Celtics would add is unclear, but the most logical possibility is Harry Giles, a fourth-year big man who was waived by the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday."
Giles seems like a smart flier. A guy who has talent, highly touted in his high school class, suffered injuries and bad situations. Of course, the question is always "If he's worth it, why did everyone else cut him?" But Tatum and him are buddies and it does feel like there's something there.

I also wouldn't be surprised if the Celtics brought the Green Kornet back full time.

I think that if there was any positive value, or even neutral value, for Fernando, he would already be gone.

Iím not bothered by this. Getting personal with other posters is where Iíd draw the line.

I cannot agree that the teamís ďbiggest question is the 4 spotĒ. Tatum will play a lot of minutes there, and Udoka has signaled his willingness to play two-big lineups. In fact in todayís game it probably doesnít make sense to use that old 1-5 terminology, as though there were five identifiable tasks.

As for Kornet, Iíll believe it when I see it. Emergencies happen.
