With the Celtics on the All-Star break, forward Grant Williams is getting some much needed rest off the floor. Still, he got to experience a major accomplishment over the weekend.
As first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Saturday, Williams has been voted the First Vice President of the NBPA – the NBA’s players association. The NBPA structure has seven vice presidents behind the president on the Executive Committee, but one of the seven sits higher on the corporate flow chart – a spot Williams will now step into. The role was previously held by Andre Igoudala.
