    Getty Grant Williams, Boston Celtics With just four days to go until the February 10 trade deadline, the Boston Celtics find their name floating around the rumor mill once again. However, this time, the Celtics are being urged not to make a trade. “The one thing I’ve heard that I don’t like is the possibility of moving Grant Williams, I think Grant Williams has had a really good year. He’s four inches too short but he’s the only guy who is hitting 3s for you. You better get a shooter back if you are going to trade Grant Williams,” Jackie MacMullan said on a recent episode of the Bill Simmons podcast.

    Getty Saddiq Bey The NBA Trade deadline is approaching as quickly as Zach LaVine’s first step off the dribble and the Chicago Bulls are expected to be a part of the chatter leading up to, and perhaps on and after the February 10 deadline. Despite having the best record in the Eastern Conference at the time of publication, the Bulls are considered a team on the cusp of title contention and not a surefire contender by most prognosticators. The latest odds from Bovada have eight teams–including the 25-27 Los Angeles Lakers–with a better chance of winning the NBA championship than the Bulls. While that might be a stretch, most believe the Bulls are at least a piece away from being in the best possible situation to reach the NBA Finals and to win it all. Is it possible the Bulls could find said piece at the trade deadline, and will they have to mortgage a good portion of their future to get the right player? Those are the most compelling questions as we sit a week away from...
    Getty Jerami Grant, Chicago Bulls The Chicago Bulls are clearly in the hunt for an NBA championship in the near future, just a quick glimpse at their recent roster moves tells you as much. If you needed any more convincing about Chicago’s potential as Eastern Conference finalists, look no further than their competition with the Miami Heat for dominance in the Eastern Conference standings. Yet, there’s a growing feeling that the team is potentially one more piece away from being a genuine powerhouse in the league. Sure, when healthy the Bulls have decimated many who have stood in their path, but what if they could upgrade from Coby White? Or find an impactful veteran for Patrick Williams? Questions such as these have become commonplace in recent weeks, especially since Williams went down with a long-term wrist injury. According to Bleacher Report’s Grant Hughes, the Bulls can’t be sure of Williams’ long-term potential and maybe enticed into trading away the sophomore forward. “They selected Patrick Williams with the No. 4 overall pick 15 months ago, and he’s also their...
    Getty Jerami Grant The Chicago Bulls are sitting atop the Eastern Conference standings and in the midst of an eight-game win streak, but there is still a consistent push for the 25-10 team to make a move that makes them a “real” contender. Some would argue the team’s success, through a good amount of adversity, already makes them a legit contender. We’ll likely find out over the next few weeks which group is right, and we’ll also learn whether Bulls Vice President of Basketball Operations Arturas Karnisovas and general manager Marc Eversley plan to pull the trigger on a deal. One consistent name that has arisen as a potential fit in the Bulls’ power forward spot is Detroit Pistons star Jerami Grant. The 27-year-old also has several connections to the Bulls organization. He is the nephew of Bulls great Horace Grant who won three straight NBA championships alongside Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen from 1990-91 to 1992-93. Jerami is also the son of former Washington Wizards player Harvey Grant–Horace’s twin brother. One of Harvey’s other sons, Jerian Grant...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The Celtics will once again be extremely shorthanded when they host the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night. With Boston dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak, seven players have been ruled out for the contest, all of whom are currently in the NBA’s Healthy & Safety Protocols. The most notable name of the bunch is big man Al Horford, who will miss his fourth straight game due to protocols.

    Getty Grant Williams shooting a three against the Brooklyn Nets. Grant Williams has been a rare shining light for the Boston Celtics in what’s been a tough start to the season. After a rough 2020-21 NBA season, the third-year wing has proven to be a valuable member of Ime Udoka’s rotation, providing solid production on both ends of the floor. During the off-season, Williams, looking notably lighter, spoke of his change of approach when it came to his body and why he felt losing some weight off his powerful frame would help him perform better this season. “My rookie year, I had to gain weight to play the 5. Then I never lost that weight. Now, I’ve lost 12-15 pounds. I’ve got another 8-10 to lose to be able to play the 4 more,” Williams told those in attendance at the Celtics media day. It makes sense that the former Tennesse big would opt to slim down after he struggled to keep pace with opposing fours last season, essentially forcing himself into a small-ball five role that came...

    Getty Grant Williams of the Boston Celtics. Outside shooting has been an issue for the Boston Celtics in recent seasons, with the team continually lamenting the lack of a shooting specialist. There have been calls for Aaron Nesmith to get more playing time and even for Sam Hauser to be given an opportunity. But while fans and media have been looking at players with a shooter’s reputation, Grant Williams has quietly gone about his job and has been putting in work from three-point range. According to Basketball-Reference, the third-year wing is averaging 43.1% from deep on 3.4 attempts per game, and against the Oklahoma City Thunder in mid-November, the Tenessee alumn went 4-of-6 from downtown to keep the Celtics spacing alive. Williams, who had two great shooting games against the Cleveland Cavaliers towards the start of November, had followed those games up with a 3-of-8 three-point shooting against the Atlanta Hawks before posting just 1-of-3 against the Los Angeles Lakers. However, the North Carolina native refound his shooting touch in the Celtics’ tightly-contested victory over the Thunder and...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The Celtics may be without big man Robert Williams when they visit the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night. Williams is listed as questionable for Wednesday’s clash with left knee tendinopathy. Williams played just 13 minutes of Monday’s win over the Cleveland Cavaliers before leaving with the injury. He did not play in the second half, and Celtics head coach Ime Udoka did not have much of an update following the victory. READ MORE: Damien Harris, Gunner Olszewski Return To Patriots Practice“Not sure if he did something specific to it, but it was pretty tight at halftime and felt a sharp pain, so we kept him out,” explained Udoka. “We’ll see when he gets tested and looked at, how fine he’ll be.” READ MORE: Report: Fenway Sports Group Close To Purchasing Pittsburgh PenguinsLosing Williams would be a big blow to Boston, which is already without Jaylen Brown as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

    Getty Jaylen Brown, Celtics Now, it counts. The Celtics will open the season on Wednesday night in New York, and they will do so shortly after getting a sizable bit of good news: star wing Jaylen Brown will be in the starting lineup. Brown, who missed the end of last year with wrist surgery, had tested positive for COVID-19 on October 8, leaving him in question for the season opener. He’s been in quarantine for much of the past two weeks, but coach Ime Udoka said on Wednesday that Brown has looked “impressively fine” for a guy who has been in isolation. Brown said he had only mild symptoms after coming down with COVID-19. #NEBHInjuryReport update: Jaylen Brown will play in tonight’s season-opener at MSG.

    Getty Boston Celtics big man Grant Williams poses during the 2019 NBA rookie photoshoot. The Boston Celtics have seen a number of strong performances from bench players over the course of the preseason. During the team’s October 9 win over the Toronto Raptors, though, third-year power forward Grant Williams showed off some particularly exciting offensive prowess. Williams led the Beantowners’ bench effort that night by scoring 12 points and hitting two of his four shot attempts from three-point range. He also threw down a gnarly slam on some off-ball action after a slick feed from Al Horford. It was a play that served as proof of concept for the work he put in over the summer to slim down and make himself more viable offensively, as both a cutter and a shooter/scorer. And Williams is all about the progression. “That dunk made me feel a little bit more happy,” Williams said, via CLNS Media. “I’m getting in the air a little bit, feeling a little bit lighter on my feet, defending a little bit better, trying to improve...

Delpit and Williams both practiced on Thursday as the Browns wrapped up their work week. Players are off this weekend before returning to work on Monday with an eye on Week One.

    Getty Boston Celtics forward Grant Williams defends Brad Wanamaker of the Charlotte Hornets. Free agency and summer trade season won’t kick into high gear in the NBA for a couple more weeks. However, the Boston Celtics unofficially tipped things off last month when new team president Brad Stevens swapped Kemba Walker for Al Horford and Moses Brown. While Horford’s homecoming is exciting for fans — and may even help some on the court and behind the scenes — the deal was largely a cost-saving move for Boston. If Stevens and his brain trust want to improve upon last season’s woes, there’s probably more work to be done in Beantown. But what shape or form does that work take? Will Marcus Smart finally get moved? Is Stevens dangling Jaylen Brown in hopes of landing an even bigger star to play beside Jayson Tatum? Or, is the Celtics front office aiming to improve the roster incrementally and around the margins? Whatever the case may be, pinpointing the Celtics player that will be the next to be moved is a difficult...

    Jaw-dropping footage shows how Canada's largest house - a 65,000-square foot lakeside mansion - has fallen into disrepair since being abandoned during the financial crisis. The unfinished property - named the Peter Grant Mansion after its intended owner - is packed with luxurious features such as a waterfall, small golf course, two swimming pools, indoor boat garage, squash court and an observation lighthouse.  It sits on the picturesque Lake Temiskaming in Northern Ontario, and was abandoned during the financial crisis of 2008, despite being close to completion. The property, which has curved walls and floor-to-ceiling windows, has been left to rot ever since. A YouTube video tour of the property created by Jake Williams, founder of the Toronto-based Bright Sun Films, reveals the mansion's winding staircases, towering windows and curved architectural features.  Williams could be heard exclaiming: 'What a waste!' as he entered the abandoned home.   The Peter Grant Mansion sits on 43 acres of property and was last listed in 2010 as costing $25million. It was near completion before the 2008 economic recession financially crippled its owner and his company. Grant...
    Getty Boston Celtics forward Grant Williams defends Garrett Temple of the Chicago Bulls. During the Boston Celtics‘ second-half resurgence, a number of players have emerged to play key roles in the turnaround. Chief among them are the team’s frontcourt All-Stars, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. While both players are in the midst of career years, they have been particularly good as of late. In Boston’s April 15 win over the LA Lakers, Brown dropped an incredible 40 points on just 20 shot attempts. And Tatum was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week recently after a string of games that included a 53-point outburst against the Minnesota Timberwolves. As good as the Celtics’ dynamic duo has been, though, the improved play of the team’s support players has undoubtedly played an equal role in Boston’s transformation. In particular, a certain Celtics role player has managed to have a massive impact on games with his defense. He may not have captured headlines with his play as of late, but when second-year forward Grant Williams has been on the court for...
    It’s time to talk about prospects worth your attention in the 2021 NFL Draft who aren’t already being endlessly bloviated about. Often, a brief video is worth more than 1,000 words of scouting jargon. UAB’s Jordan Smith is a buzzy edge rush prospect with lots of sexy tape against midmajor competition. Unfortunately, it’s hard to project whether a Conference USA defender will be as effective once he starts facing blockers who are not future gym teachers or real estate salesmen. To get a true glimpse of Smith’s NFL potential, check out the 24:35 mark of this video of the 2019 Las Vegas Bowl against Appalachian State. Smith arrives in the backfield while the quarterback and running back are still executing the “mesh” on a zone read. Smith tackles the running back, who does not have the ball.

If you want to do that via the trade route, here are some players to consider acquiring, as well as a couple to potentially consider trading away. Trade for: Jerami Grant, Detroit Pistons The Pistons bringing in Grant while starting a rebuild might have seemed like a peculiar move at the time. Given that Grant turns 27 next month, it still might be, but in terms of fantasy, the acquisition couldn’t have worked out much better. Grant has been the leader of the Pistons’ offense, averaging 23.3 points and 2.5 three-pointers per game. He’s not only producing on the offensive end either, as he’s posting averages of 5.2 rebounds. 3.1 assists and 1.2 blocks to supplement the scoring. He’s also averaged a whopping 36 minutes per...
    Getty Images Andrew Wiggins of the Warriors goes up for a shot on Grant Williams the Celtics For the Boston Celtics, a team plagued by injuries of late, Brad Stevens turned to one of his bench players and it paid in dividends as the Celtics managed to hold off Steph Curry (38 points) and the Golden State Warriors in a 111-107 victory. Jayson Tatum, whose 27 points on 9-of-19 attempts from the floor, including 4-of-10 from behind the arc, led four Celtics players that scored in double figures, including second-year big man Grant Williams, who contributed to the win in a big way. His 15-point – including a perfect 3-of-3 clip from behind the arc – 4-rebound performance led the second unit as Stevens rode Grant, along with his starters, the rest of the way. “I feel more comfortable, still learning though,” Williams said after Tuesday’s win. “There were a few opportunities where I could have shot the ball but I chose not to. I tried to put it on the floor but with this team, you have...
    By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Someone on the Celtics roster is going to have to step up to fill the Marcus Smart void over the next few weeks. It’s not that other players have to go out and do everything that Smart does on a nightly basis, but they’re going to have to chip in with the little things. It’s going to be someone different each night, as head coach Brad Stevens said when the C’s touched down in San Francisco on Monday. On Tuesday night, as the Celtics tipped off their five-game road trip against the Golden State Warriors, that player was Grant Williams. Williams logged a DNP against the Lakers on Saturday night and has been in and out of the Boston lineup (and Stevens’ doghouse) for much of the season. But he went from being glued to the bench a few nights ago to having his best game of the season on Tuesday.

    Cleveland Cavaliers center Andre Drummond is expected to be one of the hottest names on the market before the 2021 trade deadline. With their inability to reach an agreement regarding a contract extension and the recent arrival of Jarrett Allen, most people believe that Drummond would not be finishing the 2020-21 NBA season as a Cavalier. Once he becomes officially available on the trading block, several teams that are in dire need of a frontcourt boost and additional star power are expected to express a strong interest in adding Drummond to their roster. One of his top landing spots this season is the Boston Celtics. According to Greg Patuto of NBA Analysis Network, the Celtics could land Drummond from the Cavaliers by sending them a package that includes Aaron Nesmith, Grant Williams, and a 2021 second-round pick. If the suggested trade becomes a reality, Patuto thinks it would help Boston and Cleveland in filling up the needs to improve on their roster. “Andre Drummond would completely solidify the Boston Celtics’ roster and balance it out well along with Jayson Tatum...

    After suffering another huge disappointment last season, rumors have started to swirl around Lauri Markkanen and his growing unhappiness with the Chicago Bulls. With their inability to compete for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, there are speculations that Markkanen could soon find his way out of Chicago if the direction of the organization remains unchanged. He may be expected to start the 2020-21 NBA season as a Bull but if they struggle early, he could demand to be moved before the 2021 trade deadline. One of the teams that could try to save Markkanen from the Bulls is the Boston Celtics. According to Jake Rogers of NBA Analysis Network, the Celtics could acquire Markkanen by sending a package that includes Romeo Langford, Grant Williams, Aaron Nesmith, and a 2021 first-round pick to Chicago. Though it would cost them three young and promising talents and a future first-rounder, Rogers believes that the proposed scenario would make a lot of sense for the Celtics. With the team currently in a win-now mode, they should continue finding ways to improve their...
