Former Boston Celtics reserve forward Grant Williams made an appearance on former teammate Theo Pinson‘s Tidal League “Run Your Race” podcast earlier this summer, talking about his time in the NBA with the team that drafted him, as well as his college days playing for Rick Barnes at Tennessee.
Among the many topics touched on by the Charlotte native was his journey of being drafted by the Celtics, including his unexpected selection and his interactions with the brass of the storied ball club during the draft process. From twisting his ankle in his workout for Boston to hearing his name called on the big night, Williams opens up about a key period in his life.
