Celtics Waive Terrence Williams

Williams, a 6’6" guard/forward, appeared in 24 games for the Celtics during the 2012-13 season and averaged 4.6 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 13.3 minutes per game. He also appeared in five games for the Celtics during the playoffs and averaged 1.0 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 9.6 minutes per game. So why exactly was Williams, one of the few bench contributors to the team’s postseason this year that was signed for merely the league minimum next year let go now? Well, first and foremost, Williams was arrested on gun charges just last month. He will have his day in court and it’s unclear whether the charges will stick, but it’s definitely a large issue surrounding any player struggling to make an NBA roster. That fact, combined with the clause in Williams’ contract that had guaranteed him 200,000 dollars for next season if he was kept on the roster past June 30th, made the appeal of keeping Williams for the time being unnecessary. The Celtics are balancing a number of different options with their roster right now heading into free agency, so guaranteeing money to a player with some legal troubles when they could use some additional salary flexibility likely led to Williams’ departure.
