Celtics officially sign Enes Kanter; Kemba helped recruit him with a phone call

Even though I see Kanter more as a first big off the bench guy, the Celtics likely starting center has officially signed with the team today. If he could extend his range like Baynes did in Boston that would be a big help. Apparently Ainge thinks he has the potential.

Kanter will wear #11. Doesn't look like it's going up in the rafters for Kyrie.

Also a little credit goes to Kemba Walker as well on the Kanter signing as he helped recruit the big man.

“One of the reasons I picked Boston was because of Kemba Walker,” he said. “He called me during free agency on Danny Ainge’s phone. He said, ‘Hey, how we doing, big man?’ That was special to me.”
