It turns out Marcus Smart won’t be the only Boston Celtic cashing in this summer.
Smart at the start of the week reportedly agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $77.1 million with the Celtics. Boston, per multiple reports, arranged another four-year deal Friday, this time for Robert Williams.
Upon hearing the news of Williams’ reported new contract, Smart saluted the 23-year-old big man.
“That’s my teammate! Congrats @rob_williamsIII,” Smart tweeted early Friday evening.
Smart wasn’t the only Celtic to congratulate Williams on Twitter. Two-time All-Star Jayson Tatum also shouted out the three-year pro.
