Celtics big man, Robert Williams, has reportedly signed a four-year extension with Boston. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reported the contract to be worth $54 million, and was first on the news before Brian T. Robb of Masslive.com confirmed the news.
Williams took a big step up last year after the trade deadline. He became the starting Center and provided the Celtics with much needed rim protection. The C’s center finished the season with 1.8 blocks per game in only 19 minutes per game.
This re-signing gives Boston a dynamic big man threat along with Al Horford. Williams improved his play in each of his three seasons and fans are hoping to see him do it again.
The deal will also be active starting next season, so Williams will stay on his current deal for this upcoming season.
