Grant Williams says the Celtics know what type of team they are
Grant Williams, in speaking on his team, said, "We're definitely understanding of each other. We know our roles. We know what type of team we are, and [we] [maintained] the chemistry."
Although serving mostly in a reserve role this year, Williams has been able to take advantage of his opportunities and carve out an identity on this talented Celtics squad. His vocal leadership, intangibles, and defensive prowess have allowed him to contribute to the success of the team. The rookie has played in 62 contests this year and has averaged 15.6 minutes of play, 3.5 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.0 assists, .5 steals, and .5 blocks per game. With the Celtics "clicking" and "knowing" who they are, it wouldn't be crazy to see Williams' skill-set be leveraged more as part of the rotation. However, even with an increased role, his success on the floor may not directly lead to consistent fantasy production. At this point, he is a speculative play at best and is worth keeping on your radar for possible deep-league play.
