Stevens Discusses Celtics’ Crowded Frontcourt, How Al Horford Can Help Robert Williams

CBS Local


Article Summary:

“We have really good players at that position. We’ll see how it all shakes itself out.”

While Horford and the final two years of the four-year, $109 million deal he signed with the Philadelphia 76ers in 2019 are seen as a salary match for Walker’s worse contract figures, Stevens is confident that the 35-year-old will be a positive for the Celtics in his second go-around with the team.

“Al can move the needle. He had a good year in Oklahoma City; he didn’t play a ton of games, but statistically had a year that applies across the board,” Stevens said of Horford, who averaged 14.2 points and 6,7 rebounds in his limited playing time with the Thunder.

“Rob is a guy that really wants to be good. He is a listener and he wants to improve,” Stevens said of Williams.

“Tristan’s ability to switch and rebound allows him to play with a spacer like Al. Rob playing a the role of dunker and in the lob game gives you flexibility. Those are things we’ll figure out,” said Stevens.
