Grant Williams’ big chance

SBNation

Article Summary:

He’s an unusual player with an unusual fit, a 6-foot-6 big man on a roster with four centers that have more typical positional size.

Defensively, he’s a high-IQ player who plays with awareness and hustle, which is how he found his way onto the court in some crucial moments under the notoriously-stingy-with-rookies Brad Stevens. Williams is remarkably strong, but 6-foot-6 just isn’t quite enough length to protect the rim, and at 240 pounds, it’s reasonable to question if he has the mobility to keep up with quicker wings if he’s playing outside. As a late first round pick, he was hardly drafted to be a top-of-rotation kind of player, but it feels like he’s capable of more than the sporadic, inconsistent role he’s played thus far.
