    I wonder if we could get another pick. I like the looks of a couple of these dudes including Brown

    Another punchable-face guy in Philly. They can field a team of them.

    Must be some serious character concerns for him to have slid so far, but seriously, he has more upside than anyone at this stage as a rim runner/interior defender.

    Woj thinks it could be a steal, talent-wise.

    Yes, not bad at all. He can give us frontcourt bench minutes and fills the physical presence we need. Good fit to contribute to our next championship. Stromile Swift clone.

    Williams is a lottery-level talent, a player with immense talent. If he can show a commitment to playing hard, this could be a steal of the first-round. ESPN's @Mike_Schmitz compares him to another 27th overall pick: Clint Capela.

    And that's why you stand pat sometimes, and see what happens. I think Danny is probably getting the guy he would have taken if he had the 15th pick in this draft.

    This team continues to come together, Danny still has a ton of future chips to use...This team is poised for a long, long run of championship contending.

    "He's not a good offensive player."

    Good thing we don't need offensive players. We've got a top 10 and a top 25 offensive player coming back to a team that was one game from the NBA finals already.

    Good value on paper. But does he fit with Stevens' offense?

    They have a strong enough locker room and organization to hopefully overcome any off court issues, and hopefully he comes in with a chip on his shoulder. Surprised they went for the homerun vs the certainty of a cost controlled rotation player but I trust the talent evaluation and he has a ton of upside. If he hits he’s a perfect fit long term as a defensive anchor.

    Plug him right into the Greg Monroe role. Not as good a scorer or passer inside but has the tools to be better at everything else.

    The value was definitely there and he fills a need for us which is what Ainge was looking to do on a nice cheap rookie deal. I disagree with all the talk about Williams having all this lottery talent, being a home run, etc etc. simply because he's an awful offensive player and an even worse passer. I think I had him 21 or 22 and an overhyped type but this is a great fit here for both the player and the Celtics in the role he'll play.
