Now that the Timelord has time on his hands, he hopes to use it wisely – a hope the Celtics sincerely share. One of the first goals is to find the right basketball and conditioning trainer. “I’m planning on being in a couple of cities working with a couple of different people until I find a person that I just connect with,” Williams said. “We’ll just see how that goes.” As for this past year, he certainly found a good teacher beyond the coaching staff in Al Horford. “I feel like Al’s obviously a great person for anyone to watch play, you know? Not just me,” Williams said. “And that’s on the court and off the court, he’s a guy you want to watch and learn from. He led by example all year, and we had conversations about certain players or something that happened in the game, things like that.”
Few people have been talking about his future in Boston because most people assumed Horford would either opt in to the $30 million or opt out and sign a longer-term deal with Boston. Not many people expected a third option of possibly leaving, maybe not even Horford himself. “It’s something that I haven’t even stopped to think about,” he said. “I’ve enjoyed being here in Boston. Just have to wait and see what we’re going to do as a team. And it’s steps that the management is going to do moving forward, and continue to get better.”
