Is how the Boston Celtics are using Grant Williams costing him money in free agency?

During the 2022 NBA offseason, reserve forward Grant Williams and the Boston Celtics could not agree on a number for the former Tennessee standout’s rookie contract extension. Williams instead elected to bet on himself in the 2022-23 season.

At first, it looked like the right move for the Charlotte native. Williams flashed new skills and continued to contribute to the club at a high level. Then he hurt his arm ahead of the 2023 All-Star break and has seen his role with Boston steadily shrink with each passing game, even picking up a recent DNP-CD.

Did Williams cost himself money by choosing to go to restricted free agency? Or will teams see past his recent slump?

The hosts of the CLNS Media “Winning Plays” podcast recently linked up with NBC Sports Boston’s Chris Forsberg to talk it over.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say about Williams’ prospects in free agency this summer.
