Celtics pick Texas A&M’s Robert Williams in NBA draft

Power forward Robert Williams was projected to be a lottery pick – and that was last year, after his freshman year at Texas A&M. ''It's not my job to know what the other 26 teams are thinking,'' Celtics coach Brad Stevens said after adding the two-time Southeastern Conference defensive player of the year. A 6-foot-10, 237-pound Oil City, Louisiana, native, Williams was considered a certain first-round pick as a freshman – maybe in the top 10.
