HoopsHype Terrence Williams rumors

But Williams, whom the Celtics signed to a 10-day contract Monday, won’t be able to join the Celtics on the court until he receives a letter of clearance from the Chinese Basketball Association, and he didn’t receive that letter in time for Tuesday’s game against the Nuggets. Williams most recently played in China for the Guangdong Southern Tigers of the CBA. Under the NBA’s agreement with FIBA (Federation International de Basketball), a player must receive a letter of clearance from the FIBA team he played for before joining an NBA team. “Sometimes that’s quick, sometimes that’s a long process,” Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said. “We’re trying to finalize that paperwork. I’m hopeful that it will get done soon.” Boston Globe

Anthony Tolliver has been in the mix for some time, but the team also has interest in free agents Michael Redd, Terrence Williams and Shawne Williams. Redd has a connection with Ernie Grunfeld since Grunfeld drafted Redd, a former all-star and Olympic gold medallist, for Milwaukee in 2000. Redd averaged 8.2 points last season in Phoenix after missing most of the past three seasons with knee ailments. Washington Post
