future role on the new squad of the former fan favorite of the Boston Celtics…….

MassLive’s Brian Robb was not sold on former Boston Celtics role player Grant Williams’ new team, the Dallas Mavericks, despite them dispatching of No. 1 overall draft pick Victor Wembanyama and the San Antonio Spurs on October 25. “Williams wanted a big payday and more minutes, which is exactly what he got from the Mavericks,” Robb prefaced before saying, “He showed off his solid 3-point shooting in the victory as Williams also got the start. It’ll remain to be seen how the Mavericks look like this season with Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic leading the way, but they at least came away with the season-opening win.”

Williams was an essential element for the Mavericks, logging 35 minutes and sinking 6/11 shots overall and 4/8 from beyond the arc against the Spurs; proving to be the perfect kick-out option along the perimeter for Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic.

Smart implied that the Boston Celtics front staff didn’t think highly of him, possibly not even President of Basketball Operations Brad Stevens.

Smart told Jared Weiss of The Athletic, “I’m happy to be in an organization that wants me and sees me (have) great value” (h/t Boston.com). “I’m thrilled and eager to get started,”

It appears like Robb doesn’t think things will go well for Smart and the Grizzlies in 2023–2024.
