30Q: Can Semih Erden Contribute?

During his team's silver medal showing in the World Championships, Semih Erden was a bright spot on the team.  While he didn't start, he was a key contributor that came up big in the semi-final game and was trusted by his teammates.

TrueHoop observed:

Semih Erden, who will join the Celtics in a few weeks, looks very comfortable in a very physical game, and certainly seems to have earned enough trust from his teammates that as the game was slipping away they turned the ball over repeatedly trying to get it to him.

So does he have a role on this Celtics team?  Can he earn some playing time in the regular rotation?  Or will he only play when there are injuries and the team needs a big body?  Or is there a chance that he might not even make the roster?
