I hope not. I don't mind a good shooting touch, but this guy needs to rebound and defend the paint.
He can defend the paint from a positional standpoint and rebounds just fine, but I wouldn't expect him to grab a bunch of offensive boards. He's a stretch big who is legitimately 7-feet tall. Boston wasn't trying to hit a homerun but a double, and it remains to be seen if the outfield can run it down.
