Position: C, PF
Age: 23
Height: 208 cm
Weight: 113 kg
Birth place: United States of America

The 23-year-old has started just 16 games in three seasons, but the new deal puts his annual salary in the top half of the league's centers, per the report.

Williams (2.08) averaged 8.0 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.8 blocks, and 18.9 minutes in 52 games (13 starts) last season while shooting 72.1 percent from the field. He has never taken a 3-point shot in the NBA. In Game 1 of the Eastern Conference first-round series against the Brooklyn Nets, Williams had 9 blocks. This is Celtics' all-time single-game playoffs record.

A first-round draft pick (27th overall) in 2018 out of Texas A&M, Williams has career averages of 5.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 14.7 minutes in 113 games.
