|Robert Williams: Agrees to contract extension|
Williams inked a four-year, $54 million contract extension with the Celtics on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Scoop: Williams' deal with Boston will allow the 23-year-old to continue to develop alongside the Celtics' young core of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. The center is coming off his best season yet as the dominant rim protector averaged 8.0 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.8 blocks in only 18.9 minutes. The Celtics will likely end up with a three-man rotation at center, where Williams will compete with Enes Kanter and Al Horford for minutes.
