The Boston Celtics and big Robert Williams have agreed to a four-year, $54 million contract deal.
A multiyear contract extension has been struck between the Boston Celtics and center Robert Williams.
Williams is expected to sign a four-year, $54 million agreement with the Celtics, league sources informed ESPN and the Boston Globe on Friday. In terms of annual income, the deal will put him in the top half of NBA centers.
The agreement has yet to be confirmed by the team.
Williams has seen his role grow each season since joining the league as a first-round draft pick out of Texas A&M in 2018, including 13 starts in 52 games this past season.
During the 2020-21 season, Williams averaged career highs in points (8.0), rebounds (6.7), assists (1.8), and blocks (1.8) while playing 18.9 minutes per game.
Williams, who is 23 years old, has played in just 113 games in his first three NBA seasons due to nagging ailments. Despite his injury problems, he has proven to be a capable finisher and rim protector.
The Celtics and veteran guard Marcus Smart agreed to a four-year, $77 million contract extension earlier this week.
