The Boston Celtics always had high expectations in mind when they drafted Grant Williams in the first round of the 2019 NBA Draft out of Tennessee as a two-time SEC Player of the Year in 2018 and 2019.
Although it was a slow start for Williams, he transformed his entire game over the course of the last three years. And in doing so, he became one of the most consistent 3-point shooters in the league last year.
Williams showcased himself by connecting on 41.1 percent of his 3-pointers last season and has room for improvement heading into his fourth season in Boston. He finished last season with 7.8 points and 3.6 rebounds per game.
The leap Williams made in his third year was both impressive and encouraging. He’s in the process of becoming a reliable offensive player and naturally is a great defender.
Here’s what Grant has to say about his offseason plans and how he intends to improve to help propel the Celtics further.
“Shooting on the move, that’s a big one. Not necessarily like Duncan Robinson shooting on the move but more so pick-and-pop and the shots that I’m going to have to make this season because teams are going to run me off, teams are going to be heavily contesting.”
Heading into his fourth season, Grant understands the way the NBA works and how he’s going to be defended is ever changing as he develops more skills into his arsenal.
