The Boston Celtics’ decision to trade Grant Williams to the Dallas Mavericks was a disastrous move in the eyes of some fans, with many questioning the value Boston received in return. Williams perfectly fit the team’s timeline and his ability to defend multiple positions with a nearly 40% 3-point shooting percentage made him a rare find in the NBA.

The trade saw the Celtics part ways with Williams for two second round picks, which some saw as a paltry return for a player of his caliber. The move was met with criticism from fans and analysts alike, as Williams had showcased his postseason potential and seemed to be a valuable piece for the Celtics’ future.
