In the past, I've been pretty confident with the Celtics taking on players with character issues, especially on a short term basis. Guys like Stephon Marbury, Von Wafer, and Nate Robinson come to mind. They all found differing levels of success with the team, but more importantly, never were a distraction.

Williams had been playing very well for Guangdong Southern before leaving the team due to a death in his family. He was averaging almost 18-3-4 for the first place Tigers before leaving. TWill has good size at 6'6 with great athleticism and should be able to play as a big guard and a small forward. With the Celtics no longer looking to fill a specific position, he's the kind of all-around player that Doc should be able to plug in right away. He's got a handle and the tools to play Celtic defense.
