Robert Williams has drawn interest around the league from teams, but rival executives believe Boston will hold onto Williams and view him as part of the core around Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

Asked about the Celtics getting healthy and needing their entire roster to succeed, Tatum took a chance to single out Williams, who put up 13 points, a career-high 17 rebounds and four assists against the Kings. On a team that shoots as poorly as the Celtics do at times, Williams’ 3.9 offensive rebounds per game are a crucial source of second-chance points.

This season, Williams has played in 38 of the Celtics’ 49 games, and a short-term knee problem is the only notable injury.
