Celtics Rumors: RFA Grant Williams Linked To Western Conf. Team (+ Top 3 Landing Spots)

It appears that Grant Williams' days as a Boston Celtic are over. The blockbuster acquisition of big man Kristaps Porzingis appears to force Williams out of the frontcourt mix in Boston. But as a restricted free agent, he'll still land a nice contract this summer.

According to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated, three teams have shown interest in Williams, and it's thought the Celtics might try to work out a sign-and-trade if possible. Most specifically, the Dallas Mavericks seem to be on the prowl for the four-year vet.  

Dallas Mavericks 

The Mavs are still looking for some help in the frontcourt, even after their draft night acquisition of Richaun Holmes from the Sacramento Kings, and their selection of 7-footer Dereck Lively II from Duke University with the No. 12 pick. 

They are said to be interested in Williams and could make an offer. The 6'6" forward shares the same representation as Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic, which could help Dallas work out a deal. In fact, the signs were there six months ago, if shoes mean anything. 

Orlando Magic

This is a team with plenty of cap room, and they'd have no problem coming up with the money to sign Williams if they so choose, without having to deal with the Celtics on a sign-and-trade. 

He'd be a nice young veteran add to give the Magic some playoff experience on their roster. 

Indiana Pacers

Another team that could use a 24-year-old proven veteran who plays both ends of the floor, the Pacers also have money to spend under the cap. 

As a restricted free agent, if Williams signs an offer sheet, the Celtics would have 48 hours to match or let him walk.
