The Boston Celtics have traded Grant Williams to the Dallas Mavericks as part of a three-way deal, receiving second-round picks and a traded player exception in return. The move was expected due to salary constraints and Williams’ limited playing time last season, but many fans of the ball club are responding negatively to the deal.
At a moment where the team ought to be building up the roster in pursuit of another NBA title, the Celtics instead seem to be gathering assets at the same time that word is percolating up that Boston will bide its time as it looks for a good use of those draft assets and traded player exceptions. What does the future hold for the Boston Celtics in a post-Grant Williams world?
The host of the NBC Sports Boston “Celtics Talk” podcast Chris Forsberg sat down to do an emergency pod when word of the Tennessee alum’s trade broke.
Check out the clip embedded above to see what he thinks the Celtics still need to do in the wake of the Williams deal.
