Boston Celtics: unlocking Robert Williams’ playmaking potential

One of the biggest surprises in the NBA last season was the emergence of center Bam Adebayo of the Miami Heat. He basically made Hassan Whiteside expendable for the South Beach squad, and has proven to be one of the most versatile and explosive big men in the league today. He combines a long, explosive build with touch and ball handling ability rarely seen in players his size. This very blog was calling the Boston Celtics to acquire him in exchange for Jaylen Brown (good thing it never went that far).

He is a legitimate threat to grab a defensive rebound and lead the break the other way.
