To little surprise, the Boston Celtics have picked up their options on big men Robert Williams III, Grant Williams and second-year wing Romeo Langford on Tuesday per multiple sources, an expected outcome given the solid play of all three when healthy.

Time Lord — as the hyper-athletic Texas A&M product is sometimes called — has shown flashes at the end of last season and start of this one of becoming a starter-level big man with improved passing, shooting, and most importantly defense, but missed a large chunk of the 2019-20 season due to injury. Similarly, Langford’s rookie season was marred by a litany of unlucky minor injuries capped off with a torn tendon he is still recuperating from.

Grant Williams on the other hand has been the picture of health since joining the team, and all three have shown they can stay on the floor and help a high-level team.

For that reason, today’s options picked up by the Celtics was more formality than anything else — save perhaps a vote of confidence in Langford and Robert Williams’ ability to stay healthy moving forward.
