It is also the birthday of former Celtic center George Nostrand, who played for the team under Julian in 1949.
Nostrand was born in Uniondale, New York in 1924, and would play two seasons for Boston after his college ball at High Point and Wyoming, and several professional teams afterwards.
He would come to Boston as part of the trade sending Vin Baker to Boston in exchange for Kenny Anderson, Joseph Forte and Vitaly Potapenko in the summer of 2002.
Williams would play less than a full season before being traded again, this time to the Denver Nuggets for Mark Blount and Mark Bryant, and averaged 7.3 points, 2.2 boards and 2.5 assists in his sole season as a Celtic. Co/WZLe4hYtFE
