Celtics will sign Terrence Williams for rest of season and conditionally for 2013-’14, league source tells Y! Sports.

Doc Rivers is on record as saying he thinks TWill is a point guard… but he can also play some 3 in small line ups. Kevin Garnett also paid Williams a hell of a compliment by saying he sees plays before they unfold.
The versatility, and some flashes of really good play were apparently enough to give Williams a locker for the rest of the season… and maybe beyond. Not sure what the “conditionally” part really means… but I assume it’s some sort of guarantee if he’s not waived by a certain date. I fully expect to see him on the Summer League roster now and to compete for time as Rondo’s back up.
And don’t discount the sense of relief it will give him knowing he’s not just on another 10-day deal. That will certainly free him up to play a little looser and not worry about making any mistakes that could cost him money. Being comfortable is a big deal.
This leaves DJ White and Shavlik Randolph as the remaining 10-day guys. Both will suit up for the first time as Celtics tonight.
