Boston Celtics to Sign Terrence Williams to 10-Day Contract

The deal is nearly complete, and soon-to-be teammate Jason Terry is excited to welcome Terrence Williams to the Boston Celtics. Per the Herald: “To hear Jason Terry talk about him, the Celtics aren’t getting a run-of-the-mill, 10-day guy in Terrence Williams, a fellow Seattle native. ‘I know him well,’ Terry said of the 6-foot-6, 220-pound guard, who is expected to be signed to a 10-day contract. ‘He’s one of the young kids who grew up in that area that had tremendous talent. He’s a freakish athlete. When you talk about athleticism, he’s right there with LeBron (James) and (Kevin) Durant and these guys that are high flyers. He’s right up there with him. He’s very athletic, can handle the ball. He’s highly skilled. It’s just been a matter of him getting on the right team, surrounded by veterans that he can learn from. I believe he can definitely help us.’ Williams, the 11th overall pick in the 2009 draft out of Louisville, has bounced around from New Jersey to Houston to Sacramento. He spent 10 days working out at the Celtics facility last September but couldn’t crack a tight roster. When he was cut by Detroit a month later, Williams went to China. The major knock on him in the NBA has been his attitude and approach to the game, but Terry believes Williams can get past that with the Celts.”

    If EarlClark can figure it out why cant TWill . Once of the most talented bust n the last 10yrs

    I’m glad he’s getting a chance. He’s been on garbage teams. I wish the Bulls had drafted him. Thats who he wanted to play for.

    i thought he was going to kill when he came out of louiseville, showed some flashes but was never a good fit. hope he catches on for the season and into the next, his skill set is pretty unique for soemone with his size and athletic ability (i sound like jason terry)

    This kid is JR Smith minus the J, BUT bigger and a better passer. I hope KG and Terry can help him get his mind right though.

    If there’s a team that can help him get it together… it should be the Celtics with KG. But then again, it’s make or break with KG…

    Room for more players. Curious to see who they add. My guess is they will pluck a guard from the Red Claws, and maybe a big that gets waived before the deadline. I can’t see them moving Jeff Green or Jason Terry. Certainly can’t see them get rid of KG or Paul. The only possibility I see is Brandon Bass. I know who I would like to see them get (Big Al Jefferson or Emeka Okafor) but they can’t make the numbers work.

    they might take in Doc rivers son (He is a Guard) from the Red Claws
