Report: Carsen Edwards to wear No. 4 for Boston Celtics

Report: Carsen Edwards to wear No. 4 for Boston Celtics

Isaiah Thomas won't be the last undersized point guard to wear No. 4 in Celtic green. 

According to one report, second-round point guard and Summer League standout Carsen Edwards will wear Thomas's former number this year for the Boston Celtics. 

When Edwards was introduced in Boston, the 6-1 sparkplug instantly drew Thomas comparisons and noted the now-Wizards point guard as a source of motivation. 

“People who give me inspiration and hope are the shorter guys who make it,″ Edwards said. 

During Summer League, Edwards averaged 19.4 points per game, but was snubbed from the All-Summer League teams

Edwards agreed with Boston on a four-year guaranteed contract, which means he'll likely play an important role off the bench sooner rather than later. Fellow draft picks, first rounders Grant Williams and Romeo Langford, have also signed deals with the Celtics while second-round pick Tremont Waters will play on a two-way deal for the 2019-2020 season.

Celtics center Enes Kanter posts video enjoying his first Patriots game

Celtics center Enes Kanter posts video enjoying his first Patriots game

The New England Patriots won their third game of the 2019 season by a score of 30-14 over the New York Jets. And for one Boston-based athlete, it was a special day.

That would be Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter. The newly-signed big-man had never been to a Patriots game until Sunday and he took some time to post some video from Gilette Stadium on his Twitter account.

It's nice to see that Kanter is supporting his fellow New England athletes just a couple of months after signing with the Celtics to provide depth at the center position. It certainly sounds like Kanter was excited about the game and he had a great view as well.

It's safe to assume that some of the Patriots will return the favor to Kanter at some point during the NBA season, as members of the Patriots frequently show up at Celtics games.

Hopefully, by then, Kanter will be playing a big role for the team as the Celtics look for big-man production in the wake of losing Al Horford, Aron Baynes, and Marcus Morris during the 2019 offseason.

Enes Kanter shows big support for 7-foot-7 Tacko Fall in latest tweet

Enes Kanter shows big support for 7-foot-7 Tacko Fall in latest tweet

Enes Kanter seems to be a fan of Boston Celtics' 7-foot-7 rookie Tacko Fall.

Kanter posted a video to Twitter of Fall practicing at Auerbach Center, and he took time to praise Fall's efforts on Twitter.

The Celtics' signed Kanter to a two-year $10 million deal back in July, while Fall entered Boston's system as an undrafted free agent but he impressed in the Las Vegas Summer League. Kanter is the replacement for Al Horford, who left the Celtics over the summer for the Philadelphia 76ers.

The two should be a great duo for the Celtics, as both have the height and skill to be something special this coming season.
