Terrence Williams Signs With The Boston Celtics

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

Good news from the world of pro basketball, where Terrence Williams has inked a 10-day contract with the Boston Celtics.

Williams, who spent three years in the NBA with three different teams before being cut by the Pistons during training camp this season, recently excelled in China. The former Louisville star averaged 17.9 ppg for the first-place Guangdong Southern Tigers, shooting 48 perent from the field and 31 percent from beyond the arc.

The move to China was the low point of a rapid fall from grace for T-Will, who was the 11th overall selection in the 2009 NBA Draft.

Williams showed signs of being able to have a sustained career in the league when he averaged 8.4 points for New Jersey in his rookie season. He clashed with the Nets coaching staff in his second year, however, and was eventually sent down to the D League as punishment for being consistently late to team meetings and practices. He played in just 11 games that season.

T-Will was given opportunities for fresh starts in both Houston and Sacramento, and though he put up decent numbers despite sporadic playing time over the past two seasons, the attitude issues have still followed him around. He was then released by the Pistons after averaging just 2.5 points in a pair of preseason games.

Here's hoping this contract represents the start of a career resurrection for T-Will, whose Celtics will face Earl Clark and the Lakers on Wednesday.
