Williams still averaged 7.7 points and 6.2 rebounds per 23 minutes in the playoffs, making 17 appearances as Boston fell to Steph Curry’s Golden State Warriors in the Finals.
After losing Danilo Gallinari to a torn ACL earlier this season, the Celtics will certainly look to free agent options like DeMarcus Cousins, Dwight Howard and LaMarcus Aldridge to bolster their roster.
