Celtics’ Robert Williams III ranked outside NBA’s top-10 trade value centers

Fans of the Boston Celtics might be surprised to learn that their starting center does not even crack the top 10 of HoopsHype’s most valuable centers in terms of trade value despite being on one of the friendliest contracts in the league in terms of what the Texas A&M alum can do on a basketball court.

The panel of experts making such an assessment had grave and legitimate concerns about Timelord’s availability moving forward, however, which explains why Robert Williams III checks in as the 14th-most valuable 5 in the league in their estimation. “Williams’ value is intriguing to gauge<‘ writes HoopsHype.

“On one hand, he’s been invaluable for the Celtics in their Finals run and will earn just over the mid-level exception,” they suggest.

“At the same time, his availability has been poor, and he’s missed time at the worst possible stretches,” continues H/H, referencing Williams’ meniscal tear at the end of the 2021-22 season.

At any rate, we do not expect Boston to even consider dealing the big man any time soon, which makes the exercise largely a moot one.
