**UPDATE: Washburn’s source now says the signing is a done deal.**
The Globe’s Gary Washburn has this update on the Celtics search for a warm body:
NBA source tells Globe the
#celtics are strongly considering signing former New Jersey Net swingman Terrence Williams to 10-day contract.
Williams has played with three NBA teams and most recently China, considered a head case in past but has talent.
Williams left his Chinese team last week due to a death in his family. The Nets drafted him with the 11th pick in the 2009 draft but he didn’t stick around long. Williams has since played for Houston and Sacramento. He bolted for China after getting cut by the Pistons in training camp.
Here’s a blip from his college scouting report:
The Good: Top level athlete. Extraordinary strength and leaping ability. Perfect NBA specimen. Good ball-handler with excellent court vision. Has played PG at times for Louisville. Looks pass before shot. Can create shots for himself and others. Jump shoot looks fine aesthetically with proper elbow lift and great elevation. Excellent rebounder and instant fast break. Disruptive defender and defensive playmaker.
