Boston Celtics Release Terrence Williams

And it looks like the talented though often troubled Terrence Williams will be looking for another job this Summer.

According to Yahoo Sports, the Boston Celtics have waived Williams:

Boston has waived guard Terrence Williams, team says.

There was no reason for the release, though, it’s with good assumption that it was related to Williams’ most recent run in with the law which resulted in his arrest after reportedly making threats with a gun during a child visitation.

Williams had recently stated that Celtics general manager Danny Ainge had informed him he was ‘part of their future’ but after the trade of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, that future went down the drain.

The former Louisville Cardinal was one of the most talented members of the 2009 NBA Draft, but red flags dropped his stock which resulted in the New Jersey Nets drafting him 11th overall. Williams eventually became the first player sent to the D-League for disciplinary issues before moving onto the Houston Rockets and Sacramento Kings before making his way to Boston.

With elite talent, Williams has the world at his fingers but he just can’t seem to harness it. He’s running out of chances, assuming he has any left.
