The full details are out for the Robert Williams contract extension with the Boston Celtics.
As reported by Brian Robb of MassLive, Williams’ four-year deal is for up to $54 million, but only $48 million of it is guaranteed. Here’s a year-by-year breakdown:
2022-23: $10.7 million
2023-24: $11.6 million
2024-25: $12.4 million
2025-26: $13.3 million
In each year of the extension, Williams can earn another $446,000 in incentives if he plays 69 or more games. If he hits that incentive in any given year, he can earn another $200,000 if the Celtics reach the Eastern Conference Finals. He can also earn an undisclosed amount of bonus money if he’s named to the NBA All-Defensive first or second teams in any given year.
Williams has averaged only 37.7 games played over his first three seasons with the Celtics. He’s averaged 14.7 minutes, 5.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 1.5 blocked shots in 113 career contests.
Robb also reports that Williams’ contract contains a “poison pill” until the start of free agency in July 2022, meaning he will be virtually impossible to trade up to that point.
