After playing a while for a team in China and then signing a short 10 day contract with the Boston Celtics, Terrence Williams can finally breathe easy. The Celtics have agreed to a multi-year deal with the former Louisville swingman.
In the 4 games that Williams played for the Celtics he averaged 3.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists. He was loved by the Celtics fan base for his court vision and ability to make good decisions. Doc Rivers also was praised Williams for his non selfish style of play.
With the Celtics in the injury trouble that they are currently in, Williams could play a major role coming off of the bench. Rajon Rondo, Leandro Barbosa and Jared Sullinger are all out for the season at this point. You can expect Williams to get more minutes now that he has a bigger contract because obviously the front office saw some kind of use in him.
Hopefully Williams will do it right this time and turn this into a career reviving event. If Williams gets minutes, I truly believe that he can play a big role on a team just like he did back when he lead Louisville to the #1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament.
Here are some highlights of Williams with the Celtics:
