The Boston Celtics and French center Vincent Poirier have agreed to a two-year deal, league sources tell
Sure, they *can* be...I think folks want to do know *if* they'll be.The Celtics own Early Bird Rights on Theis and gave him a qualifying offer which is worth $1.8 million. Poirier is being signed using the Minimum Exception. I believe both can be on the team.
Little thing from those highlights. He often blocks shots with his left hand. That's a great skill for a righty to have, as you can block more shots as a left-handed shot-blocker...just have a little more reach as most offensive players move to their right (your left).Here are some clip reels, he is an explosive leaper and can execute a PnR:

Some people in the Kanter thread were upset about missing out on Pourier. Well.
Pourier is a rugged rebounder, particularly on the offensive glass.
Looks like we might have a new leader in the clubhouse over Hayward for "player whose last name SoSH members will misspell most often."Pourier looks more athletic than Baynes, bigger than Theis.
Can Theis really play the 4?Why not? Theis can play the 4 or 5 and it looks like Poirier is athletic enough to do so as well. Versatile.
Was the thread title changed. Because I swear I just be copied that. At least I copied something around here. Maybe one of those other posts.Looks like we might have a new leader in the clubhouse over Hayward for "player whose last name SoSH members will misspell most often."

Now I'm pretty pumped about a Pourier/Kanter/Time Lord three-headed monster in the middle.
I know he dunks lefty and blocks shots lefty (not always..he had some right handed blocks in there). But his jump shot looks right-handed. Ambidextrous guy? Either way...blocking shots lefty (either because you're lefty or because that's how you do it) is advantageous, so it's good.He's left-handed.

I think this is right. Theis is a smallball 5 who can be used to run a 5-out offense. None of his 10 most common 5-man units from last year have Horford, Baynes, or Williams. He did play more with Horford in his rookie year.Can Theis really play the 4?
He and Baynes were on the floor for less than three minutes total last year.
I think the Celtics view him as just an undersized 5.
Think they'd really struggle to score with Theis at the 4 alongside an even slower 5.
This guy could be Janos's editor.FWIW on the Boston Celtics subreddit:
"Hello from a EuroLeague fan. I'm watch him since his Paris-Levallois days. He spent his last two year at Baskonia and he became best solid center in EuroLeague. He is very good p&r man. Great pick, good-timing-roll and power finishing.
He is good defender. Solid and exertional. 6'11'' height is enough for challange his opponents.
But he can't shoot threes and very rare mid-range shoot.
I can get every question about him!"
The more pressing issue is a nickname for Grant Williams, since we already have a Williams on the roster in Time Lord and it could get confusing.ha. Janos's cousin from the Ukraine
Have we decided on Vincent Poirier's nom de plume?

Come now. There were multiple blocks and one 15 foot shot in those clips.Yea, the craftsmanship behind the use of "exertional" must not be forgotten. His highoight clips are honestly not encouraging - usually when a highlights package is nothing but alley oop dunks for a big guy its because he doesnt do anything else. Lets hope he's a good defender.
