The now-Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter, who signed to a two-year, $10 million deal this summer, says he is excited for the opportunity to play with Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown:

“I think that you look at the locker room and the guys are willing to learn … I feel like we can beat every team on every floor but only thing we have to do is get together and just go out there and give 100 percent. I’m really, really excited to play with Kemba, Tatum and Brown. Obviously those guys are on an All-Star level,” Kanter said, per USA Today.

The 27-year-old big man played for the New York Knicks and the Portland Trail Blazers last season, averaging 13.7 points and 9.8 rebounds in the regular season as well as 11.4 points and 9.7 boards in the playoffs.
