If Stevens isn't going to play Williams at least put him in the GL and let him get some run. Why not send Williams down and sign Noah and rotate Theis and Noah as needed. Noah is a don't need the ball player but is a great passer.

I've never liked how Ainge or Stevens value big men...it's that they don't value them.

I always liked Noah. Unfortunately it looks like his career may be over.

In any case, both Theis and Baynes could handle more minutes, if needed. I simply don’t see any urgency to acquire a non-rotation big - even if he were in his prime.

He should be healthy.  The reason he didn't play last year was because of a dispute with Hornacek.  I think we need another center who can rebound and defend the rim.  He's only 33 and won a defensive player of the year award.  I'd like to see them bring him in for a workout.  He might be interested in a backup role for a contender.  I believe he and Horford were pretty good friends in college.

I wouldn't add Noah for talent but he might be valuable the way Alonzo Mourning was for the Heat. Or how Perkins was toward the end.

Start Baynes and play Williams.

Move Hayward to the second unit.

I'm tempted to break the forum rules, just to get this thread locked.

Why do people here dislike Noah so much?  I know he didn't play well a couple years ago, but he was also battling injuries. 

He's only 33 and should be healthy and well rested.

I think most feel that he is spent and not able to play anymore at an NBA level.  I don't know.  If the problem was just injuries and he now can play, great, we could use him.  Statistically, you have to go back to 2014 to get to a time when he played at a high (for him) level.  It has been a while.

A chef shouldn't be burning toast.   ;)

Seriously, how can people know he's toast when he hasn't played in so long and when he did he was batting injuries?
