Williams Making Case to Stay in Boston?
When (Terrence) Williams reached the NBA, he told (Paul) Pierce each time they played that he had watched film of the Celtics forward. Now, after Williams formally signed a 10-day contract with the Celtics Wednesday, the two are teammates, at least for now.
But the way the 25-year-old has played in two games thus far for the Celtics — averaging 5.5 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 assists in 18.5 minutes — he is making a strong case to stay a Celtic beyond March 1 when his contract is up.
Williams has shown that he’s more than capable playing the point guard position, even though he’s oversized for that spot at 6 feet 6 inches and 220 pounds.
