Bucket loads of talent. Hopefully, T-Will is ready to do something with that talent.

NBA source tells Globe the #celtics are strongly considering signing former New Jersey Net swingman Terrence Williams to 10-day contract

I was hoping for Pargo but this will do

classic case of a million-dollar body and a ten-cent head.

I don't recall any issues during his stint with the Kings. He was a fan favorite and people were really bummed that he was let go when James Johnson was signed. T-Will is a very versatile player and a great signing if it happens.

As an aside: how do 10-day contracts count against the cap?

+1. Speaks to Ainge's point about finding someone who could actually have an impact at some point, instead of just filling a hole with a 'qualified' player.

honestly, not too worried about his offense as long as his defense is up to par.

sounds like he has the athleticism to play solid D. i think he'll struggle initially cause the system might be tough for him, but hopefully come playoff time, he can at least give us 5-10 solid minutes.

i like that hes a true 2 or 3, which allows bradley and terry to focus a bit more on playing the 1 and not going up against some of the bigger guards. plus he can get some time at SF if foul trouble comes up for green and pierce.

good signing

Whats his deal? Seemed like he had a ton of promise in College and played semi-decent in his first year as a Net. Pretty much has been a D-League floater since then.

All signs point to him being a good player. 6' 6'' athletic freak. Is he Gerald Green 2.0 or is he just a knucklehead that hasnt been able to cut it? If so what has he done to be constantly demoted and out of an NBA contract just 4 years after he was drafted at number 11?

I feel like this should be a steal of a signing but I dont know enough about his NBA track record to say so.

Another Von Wafer, more or less.  About the best we could do at this point in the season.

Nice thing is he has size and can also handle the ball a bit.

Really like the fact he can play multiple positions, known to be a good passer, and I guess decent D.  Would like another signing to be able to play the 4/5 spot.

  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.

This is great! He has a lot more talent/potential than Delonte West or Shelvin Mack. He's sort of like DeMarcus Cousins in a way - hopefully he if we get him, KG will make him get his act together.
Reclaiming the NBA Throne is easy.

All we need is a powerful beast that can soar up to the skies and lay waste on our enemies. One with potential to wreak havoc and strike fear. With such a mythical being, we can take back what is ours - with fire and blood.

I hear talk that such a beast is projected #1 overall in the 2014 draft.
