The Dallas Mavericks are acquiring restricted free agent Grant Williams in a sign-and-trade agreement with the Boston Celtics, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The San Antonio Spurs join the pact as relayed by Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Williams will ink a four-year, $53 million deal to join Dallas which will also absorb two future picks from the second round. Boston will gain two second-round selections in return. San Antonio, for its part, will meanwhile obtain Reggie Bullock and an unprotected pick from the Mavs in 2030.
The Mavs have been one of the closest suitors for Williams as the forward hit the market as a free agent after failed rookie extension negotiations with the C’s from last year.
Dallas benefits well from Williams’ three-point shooting and leadership. The current Vice President of the NBPA improved his long-range marks throughout the years in Boston as he shot 39.5 percent from treys out of 3.7 attempts last season. He also averaged a career-best 8.1 points and 4.6 boards in 79 games.
