Knicks, Obi Toppin’s replacement could arrive from the Celtics

With the increasingly probable trade of Obi Toppin, the Knicks will have a vacant seat on the bench, and among the names connected to New York is that of Grant Williams of the Boston Celtics.

Williams’ style of play would do just fine in New York and in coach Tom Thibodeau’s defensive-minded system. Plus, he would give them another knockdown shooter off the bench and a nice piece that Thibodeau could use in various ways in the rotation and even late game, relying on the opponent.
