3. Kenrich Williams

Kenrich Williams has been a victim of the depth of the Oklahoma City Thunder, as he’s playing a measly 14.3 minutes per night, despite being able to contribute at a high-level.

He’s a versatile forward who can do whatever you ask of him, including operating as a small-ball five. He’s a legitimate long-range shooter, although the volume is down due to the lack of playing time, as he’s made 39 percent of his long-range attempts and is shooting 45.4 percent from the field.

The 6-foot-6 forward is averaging 10.5 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per 36 minutes and can hold his own on the defensive end of the floor, providing versatility and switchability. He’s also not afraid to put his body on the line and take a charge.

In fact, he’s one of the best in the league and drawing offensive fouls, which is a tremendous value add for any team. Thunder GM Sam Presti has an infatuation with draft picks, as we all know.

He’d likely trade his firstborn for a few second-round picks and would surely deal Kenny Hustle, who is out of the rotation.

Williams is extremely underrated and is under contract through 2027, with the final year including a team option. He’d be perfect for the Celts, in more ways than one.
