I'd think this means Delonte is out of the running? Kmart as well? With Twill, we hit our headcase quota.

Do you really believe West was ever seriously in the running?

It'll be interesting to see a guy who can slash on the court, given that we're basically a jump shooting team.

great signing for a 10 day contract. williams has 10 days to convince people that the "knucklehead" part of his past is dead and gone.

outstanding talent burdened with a crushing ego so far. let's hope he has learned his lesson and will give the celtics some strong play off the bench. if williams has turned his head around, then danny has made a great addition to the team.

When Barbosa went down, I think he was a serious consideration, before then... no.

Great find! He's actually a really good playmaker when he chooses to be. My only dislike of him is he cost me my fantasy league playoffs last year...lol  :P I picked him up wehn he played for Sac & he shot horrible from the freethrow line (5-11 i think killing my percentage) Resulting me losing.  :'(great find nevertheless

I dont think the Celtics would have actually considered bringing West back for a third run.

I'm pretty sure Ainge threw the name out there himself, so I don't see the problem with considering him.

No, he didn't. He was asked "What about Delonte West?" and said that he's "on the list" (the list at this point probably included every unsigned guard that can dribble a ball).

ok signing.  was hoping for a big man or PG to be signed

I agree, but when Barbosa went down, Doc was explicit about getting anybody who can ball, regardless of position.

TWill has a good handle, had a triple double with the Nets once, and fits in well with our point guard by committee.

Rare to get someone 4 years out of school and still have good upside.

Very excited.

Good handle, decent passer, can score off the dribble. Check out this game vs Suns last year.

I remember watching Terrence Williams for the Nets in a preseason game against the Celtics (I believe it was the Celtics) and remember thinking that this kid is gonna be one of the next great offensive players in the game. Too bad he couldnt get it together then, but hope he got it together in China and gets it for us now. In terms of pure talent, there was nobody better available.

Remember Doc said they don't need a pure PG, they just need someone to handle the ball, this signing falls in line with that.

I think there are two issues that are important here:

(1) I don't think there's anyone out there who's got the talent level to just be given the ball and trusted to be the full-time PG. Hence the need for a ball-handler (someone who can get us to the front court without turning it over) rather than a PG (someone who will direct the offense).

(2) We desperately need another player who can defend bigger guards (at some point we had to put Jeff Green on Kobe; he didn't embarrass himself, but I can't quite see this as a long-term solution).

So in a way, this is a two-in-one move to address both issues. Pretty nifty, if Williams can prove he fits the bill.
