Portland offers culture, the Celtics dollars.

NBA: Playoffs-Portland Trail Blazers at Golden State Warriors Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Free agent center Enes Kanter will talk with the Boston Celtics and Portland Trail Blazers on Day 1 of NBA Free Agency, 2019. The report comes from Marc J. Spears of ESPN.

The Blazers currently have a taxpayer’s mid-level exception to offer free agents, roughly $5.7 million. The Celtics are in flux, reputedly coming to terms with Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker. Presumably they’d still have the full mid-level exception of $9.25 million to offer a free agent. Exceptions can be split between multiple players.
