Why did Celtics give Rob Williams and Josh Richardson extensions?
Brian Robb and Rich Levine break down the Celtics' latest deals for Rob Williams and Josh Richardson and why the team is handing out so many extensions in the past week. The guys also look at some Celtics player and team props for the 2021-22 season.
Adam Motenko, Josh Motenko and Mike Minkoff discuss why the Celtics might have been better off waiting to give Robert Williams his contract extension that now kicks in after this season. Adam gives his top 4 reasons why he thinks it was a poor choice by Brad Stevens. Along the way they bring you up to date on what this means for the likelihood of Bradley Beal wearing Celtics Green in the future, how little the Timelord has actually been on the court, and where Williams ranks in the league at his position based on his rate of pay. We’ll be honest, Adam get’s pretty fired up about this, and Mike makes several key points to contest Adam’s sentiment. When the Celtics Front Office gives us lemons, the Celtics Pride Guys will sometimes make angry lemonade.On the eve of Josh Richardson signing a 1 year extension with the Celtics for 12.4 million, Josh shares his feelings on the Celtics spacing issues with their new identity being tied to their three veteran guards who are good defenders, but poor shooters. Smart, Richardson and Shroder are shooting a combined 33.8% from 3 for their careers. Coach Josh explains what this could mean for Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and the Celtics pick and roll options in 2021-2022.“Will the Celtics need to finish top 5 in the league in defense to make up for their lack of guard shooting?”Remember to rate, review, and subscribe to the Celticsblog podcast feed (we're “Celtics PRIDE”) and follow us on Twitter @celticspridepod, a @celticsblog podcast.

Adam and Will dive into the conundrum that is Robert Williams. Entering the last year of his rookie contract, Brad Stevens has a big decision to make. Do the Celtics extend Williams early, and look to get a team friendly deal in place that gives him some stability while trying to find health and consistency? Or do the Celtics take the risk of letting Rob his restricted free-agency next summer? Of course, there's always the option of trading the high-flying big, too. Sprinkle in some Semi Ojeleye discussions for good measure, and the guys start looking at contract decisions the team will need to be making in the coming weeks. Learn more about your ad choices.
