Celtics draft Texas A&M big man Robert Williams with 27th pick

With the 27th pick in the 2018 NBA draft, the Celtics selected big man Robert Williams Thursday night. 

The Texas A&M product that was projected to be off the board well before Boston’s first-round pick fell into the Celtics’ lap — a pick that was essentially a no-brainer for the C’s. At 6-foot-9, Williams’ 7-foot-6 wingspan makes him a unique rim protector for Boston and he has the versatility to guard multiple positions. 

Williams is an ideal big man for the Celtics. The Clint Capela comparisons are accurate; however, his raw offensive skill set will need a bit of tweaking under Brad Stevens. Still, he won’t have an issue adapting to a defensive-minded culture, and he’ll have plenty of time to develop offensively.
