2019 Fantasy Outlook
Grant Williams, the 22nd pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, has "Glue Guy" written all over him. No one questions Williams' team-first attitude. The concern is his size. At 6-foot-7, can Williams legitimately play power forward in the Association? His 7.5 rebounds per game during his last Vol season certainly look appealing to a Boston squad that's struggled on the boards. With the departure of both Al Horford and Aron Baynes, big-man minutes are certainly available, even with the addition of Enes Kanter. Boston did retain Daniel Theis, but he's had injury issues during both his prior Celtics seasons. Long-term, Boston would love for Williams to evolve into an effective inside presence, guarding bigs and cleaning the glass, while allowing the more dynamic Jayson Tatum or Gordon Hayward to work outside the key. Expecting that to occur during Williams' rookie season is probably asking too much, though. Expect Boston to bring their young Williams bigs (Grant and Robert) along slowly while they learn the subtleties of coach Brad Stevens' system. A slower approach would also grant Williams time to improve his catch-and-shoot three-pointer, something he showed potential with during college, draining 33 percent of his treys his final collegiate season. Playing time will be inconsistent for Williams, but the opportunity to shine does exist. Read Past Outlooks
Paces first unit in scoring

Williams managed 16 points (6-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and two steals across 29 minutes in the Celtics' 95-82 win over the Nuggets in a Las Vegas Summer League game Tuesday.
The 2019 first-round pick was in fine form once again, with his scoring total pacing Boston's first unit. Williams also co-led the starters in rebounds, and both of his tallies Tuesday were his best over the first three games of summer league play.
