Grant Williams wants to re-sign with the Boston Celtics this summer in restricted NBA free agency. As a restricted free agent, Williams can either re-sign with the Celtics or sign an offer sheet with another NBA team.

“Brad and those guys, if they decide to keep me and bring me back, of course I’m gonna come back and be excited and happy and ready to play for the Celtics,” Williams said on June 27, via Bobby Manning of CLNS Media.

“If something else happens, then I’ll have to transition, but for me, my outlook has always been that I want to make sure wherever I am, to impact success and winning and make sure I’m here for my players around me and focus on the team first,” Grant explained.
