Just a month ago, the Dallas Mavericks acquired forward Grant Williams via sign-and-trade from the Boston Celtics.
Throughout his brief time as a Maverick, Williams has made the most of his time in Dallas. On Wednesday, Williams worked with young hoopers at the Mavs Academy Hoop Camp.
New Maverick Grant Williams already involved in DFW community
Prior to his involvement in the Dallas-Fort Worth community, Williams spent his time getting acquainted with Mavs Summer Leaguers in Las Vegas.
During his time in Vegas, he joined the NBA Summer League broadcast to discuss the trade and lamented his happiness in coming to Dallas. Williams said, "I'm excited to play with talents like Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving."
Later on Wednesday, Williams took part in another event in the DFW Metroplex. This time, for a different crowd. He led a workout and later hung out with participants in a post-workout happy hour.
Community involvement isn't something new for Williams. He stood out as a member of the Boston community. Earlier this year, he hosted a basketball clinic in Boston, even in the midst of his impending free agency.
Last season with the Celtics, Williams recorded career highs across the board. He averaged 8.1 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.7 assists while being highly efficient. He shot 45.4% from the floor and 39.5% from three.
Look for Williams to further his development while playing in Dallas. He is entering the prime of his career and looks to be a full-time starter for the Mavs.
The importance of the Williams acquisition goes beyond the basketball court. Besides the tremendous value he'll add to the Dallas roster, it's looking like he'll add even more to the community.
Williams seems like he is going to fit right in, and fans should be excited about what he'll bring to the floor.
We'll have you covered with all the latest news and rumors surrounding the Mavs this summer, so stay tuned.
