Mavericks Become Disenchanted With Grant Williams’ Character


The longstanding banter surrounding Grant Williams during his tenure in Boston suggested that his Celtics teammates tolerated his personality, primarily due to his on-court contributions. However, this aspect of his character found less acceptance within the Dallas Mavericks‘ locker room.

Williams enjoyed a solid four-year stint in Boston, serving as a valuable role player alongside the Celtics’ star-studded lineup. His lighthearted approach to nearly everything, albeit occasionally met with eye rolls from teammates like Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, generally added a sense of enjoyment to the team dynamic, even serving as a source of amusement.

Despite occasional antics, such as appearing in a full Batman costume for a press conference, Williams’ knack for clutch plays, including crucial three-pointers and rebounds, outweighed any perceived drawbacks in Boston. However, with impending financial constraints, the Celtics opted to part ways with Williams during the offseason, facilitating his move to Dallas in a three-team sign-and-trade deal.

In contrast to the Celtics, Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving of the Mavericks exhibited less tolerance towards Williams’ exuberant personality, contributing to Dallas’ decision to trade him to Charlotte. According to reports from DallasBasketball.com, Williams’ persona had begun to grate on the Mavericks’ locker room dynamics in recent months.

While initially well-received in Dallas, Williams experienced a decline in playing time under Jason Kidd’s coaching, prompting the Mavericks to trade him, along with Seth Curry and a 2027 protected first-round pick, to the Hornets in exchange for PJ Washington and a pair of second-round picks ahead of the NBA trade deadline.

It took only a few months into his four-year, $53.3 million contract for the Mavericks to sour on Williams’ character, ultimately leading to his relocation to a rebuilding Hornets squad, where he will bring his versatile game and distinctive personality.
