I challenge anyone to give me one example of a game in which you can definitively say, "The Celtics would not have won that game had it not been for Grant Williams." You can't do it. Even Pritchard has such a game under his belt 5 games into the season. Grant Williams is a non-factor every time he plays. He's averaging under 4ppg in 17mpg. Do you realize how horrible that is? His career averages are worse. Can't rebound, can't shoot, can't create, can't pass, can't defend. That's right, he can't defend. He is too slow to guard 3's and stretch 4's and he is too small too guard bigs. He is not athletic enough to compensate for this. Can't shoot 3's. What does he do well?
Exactly this. The youngsters you should keep an eye on are the ones who make spectacular plays, but lack consistency and may lose you a game here and there. They are the players who have a high ceiling. Not the youngsters who play timid, make few mistakes, but in the end don't really provide much either.
I've seen enough from Grant Williams to know that his ceiling is an end of rotation player at best. He's likeable, he's smart and has a great mentality, but he's just way too short for his skillset. It's unfortunate for him.
Robert Williams on the other hand has had many times when he impacted the game (in a good way). The center position is a tough position to learn, so I'm taking those 'rookie' mistakes and put my full confidence in him. Timelord has a varied skillset and if he can be injuryfree and get the minutes to develop his game then I believe he easily can become a starting center on the Celtics.
